The latest survey that has been released by the Economist Intelligence Unit reveals the most expensive cities that can be found in the whole world. Ranking the most expensive cities in this year differs from the last year as there are cities which are ranked up, down or completely become out of the list. Ranking these expensive cities is based on the cost of living which is not the same every year even if it is in the same country. Some of the countries require spending a lot of money to be able to live in and to buy your daily necessities while there are other countries which offer an affordable life and allow you to buy all what you need without spending your income and all what you earn. It is not necessary for the cities that are ranked as the most expensive in the world to be also the richest because the ranking does not depend on what the city has but it depends on what you need to spend for living in these cities. Here are the top 10 most expensive places to live in 2014.
