Compared to the region, Tirana is the more expensive capital city as Belgrade ranked 183rd, Sarajevo 197th, and Skopje 202nd. Meanwhile, Pristina and Podgorica are not included in the report.
Based on the report, Hong Kong retained its place as the most expensive city for expatriates, followed by Ashgabat, Tokyo, and Zurich. The top ten list continues with Singapore, New York, Shanghai, Bern, Geneva, and Beijing.
