Singapore--A latest survey shows Singapore is the most expensive Asian city to spend a night, local daily Straits Times reported on Friday.

An evening for two costs 495.79 Singapore dollars (396.63 U.S. dollars) in the city state, making it the world's 14th most expensive city for visitors, according to the survey by travel website TripAdvisor.

The survey, known as TripIndex Cities, was based on an overnight stay for two people that would include a return taxi trip, a night's stay at a four-star hotel, a two-course dinner and cocktails. Some 49 cities were included in the list.

Tokyo took the 15th spot globally, with an overnight stay costing travellers 495.64 Singapore dollars (396.51 U.S. dollars).

Singapore was the 10th most expensive city worldwide, but remained the priciest Asian city this year.

Oslo in Norway came out tops for the most expensive city, costing 717.41 Singapore dollars (573.93 U.S. dollars).

Last December, a TripAdvisor survey found Singapore had the second best taxi service out of 40 cities, which included Tokyo, Dubai and Zurich.
