Singapore retained its title as the world's most expensive city for expatriates for a fourth consecutive year, followed by China's Hong Kong and Zurich, according to the latest Worldwide Cost of Living 2017 released by the Economist's Intelligent Unit.

Shanghai, the most expensive city on the Chinese mainland, is now ranked 16th overall, down from 11th last year and on par with the cost of living in the New Zealand cities of Auckland and Wellington.
