THINKING of living overseas? Here's a list you need to see.
Eurocost International has released their top 30 most expensive cities for expats. Tokyo, Luanda, and Moscow take the top three spots.
London, a favourite for Aussie expats, comes in at number five. The good news is that if you love Europe it’s now much cheaper to live there – if you can find a job. The depreciation of the currency against the rest of the world has meant cities like Paris and Amsterdam are no longer in the list.
The survey, completed in June, takes into account the cost of living, including rent, but not health or school.
Good news for Sydneysiders looking to head overseas – most of the world will be cheaper than home. Sydney is ranked at the number seven most expensive city. Surprisingly too Canberra made this list but not Melbourne.
