    I was a bit miffed by the presence of cities in Angola and Chad and the not seeing London or NYC on the list. Then I realized that this is the most expensive places for expats which is different from the absolute most expensive cities.

    Interesting all the same.

    There were numbers for Kabul based on the same criteria some time ago. Having electricity AND running water pushed house prices well over a million dollars, regardless of what the house was on its own.

    Having just visited Zurich for two days, I can confirm that it is very expensive! I loved the city but was glad to leave as my wallet was bleeding money.
