Dubai not even in the world’s 20 most expensive cities in the world

Some shocking news, we know, but a new report has found that Dubai isn’t one of the world’s 20 most expensive cities in the world.

Who knew!?

The world’s most expensive city is now Tel Aviv, according to the biannual report from the Economist Intelligence Unit.

The Israeli city climbed up from 5th last year largely due to the currency soaring and rising inflation.

The Top 10 also included Paris, Singapore, Zurich, Hong Kong, Geneva, Copenhagen, LA and Osaka.

The survey pulls together information from 173 cities and they found that, on average, prices for goods and services have risen by 3.5% year-on-year,

And Dubai? Well, Dubai came in at 64 in the rankings.
