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.

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.
