The 2018 Worldwide Cost of Living Survey, which has been compiled by the Economist Intelligence Unit for over 30 years, is out.

As might be expected, the special administrative region of Hong Kong was ranked as China’s most expensive city.

It was also ranked as the fourth most expensive city worldwide, behind Singapore, Paris and Zurich.

China’s list then follows with Shanghai, Shenzhen, Dalian and Beijing.

China’s other first-tier city, Guangzhou, came in at seventh after Taipei, while Qingdao came in eighth.

The report looks at 400 price points of 160 products and services across 133 worldwide cities.

The list of products and services is specifically chosen in relation to expat, as opposed to local, living.
