Who hasn’t thought about making a change in their life and packing up and moving abroad? But where to go? Certain factors certainly come into play such as access to beaches, jobs for expats, density of late-night Thai restaurants, and whether Paris Hilton reality shows are shown in that country. But perhaps no other factor plays as big as part as does cost of living.
Luckily, XPatulator.com helps out prospective expats by compiling a monthly list of the cheapest cities in the world for expats, taking into account such items as food, healthcare, transportation, housing and of course, alcohol (remember, these are expats we’re talking about).
And in case you were curious. Unless you were the recent recipient of a cashout from an internet IPO, try to avoid these ten cities that ranked as the most expensive in the world.
1. Japan, Tokyo
2. Russia, Moscow
3. Denmark, Copenhagen
4. Korea Republic of, Seoul
5. Central African Republic, Bangui
6. Switzerland, Geneva
7. Norway, Oslo
8. Switzerland, Zurich
9. Japan, Osaka
10.China, Hong Kong
Bhutan is an interesting one. A country with no traffic lights. it is not as open to foreigners, although I guess they don't care so much who is staying there. I actually met one American who settled down in Bhutan and has been there for years.
