The research, curated by Numbeo.com reveals the staggering cost of living in these super expensive cities. It also lifts the lids on the cost of food, rents and travel in these pricey locations.
Read on to see if your city is made the cut.
10. Sydney, Australia
Sure, the Sydney skyline is great and so is the opera but would you really pay $2,888 a month to live there?
9. Honululu, USA
If you're planning to shift base to a beachy island, we suggest you ditch Honolulu and opt for Thailand or Maldives - It's almost half the price of living in the Hawaiian island.
8. Singapore, Singapore
The little red dot on the map is a rather pricey one! It costs around $2.940 a month to live in the global financial centre.
7. Dubai, UAE
The vertical city is a tourist's paradise but ask the people who live here and they will tell you how expensive this paradise is.
6. London, UK
There are two kinds of people who live in London: 1. The ones who are super rich to afford an apartment in Oxford Street 2. The ones who travel 3 hours from the outskirts every day just to reach their job. Unfortunately, a majority fall in the latter category.
5. Hong Kong, Hong Kong
The financial centre of Asia is certainly not a cheap place to reside in. A bottle of milk in Hong Kong costs more than a fancy McDonald's meal.
4. Geneva, Switzerland
Living in a picturesque setting comes at a huge cost. People living in Geneva, Switzerland have to pay half of their earnings in rent alone.
3. New York, USA
It costs approximately $4,207 a month to live in the economic powerhouse. A privilege only the rich of the world can enjoy.
2. San Francisco, USA
The Californian city is second on the list with an average living cost of $4,612 per month. The property rates are through the roof in the city.
1. Hamilton, Bermuda
With a staggering median living cost of $4,769 per month, Hamilton Bermuda tops the list as the priciest city to live in. Unsurprisingly, the city has a meagre population of just over 3000 people, who are all probably millionaires. The rents alone take 61% of the share.
