“Every time I travel abroad, I become more aware of the disparity in the prices of commodities around the world, be it accommodation, food, clothes or souvenirs. Since I come from a developing country, most of the EU countries I have visited so far were rather expensive in my point of view – one of a citizen coming from a country in transition where the economy is shattered, to put it mildly. Perhaps the most expensive country I traveled to was Netherlands, which I visited a couple of years back. It was a luxury on which I spent most of my one-year savings. Most of the basic things which I needed during my five days stay were three or four times more expensive than in my country.”
Some days ago, a website Insider Monkey has published an article on 25 most expensive countries in the world in 2017. If you do live to travel, like myself, the article definitely provides the information that you will find very useful. It helps you estimate your budget once you decide to travel to some of the countries which are on the list, that is for sure. The article contains the information with regards to the most expensive countries to visit, the cheapest countries in the world, the most expensive cities to live in, and the most expensive cities to buy a property in. When estimating which countries are among the most expensive in 2017, the data that was taken into account has to do with the cost of living. Several sources were used, all of which provided the rates of the cost of living worldwide. The cost of living in these countries is high because the quality of life in these countries is among the highest in the world. You do get what you pay for! At least you can be sure of that. Do you think your country has made the top 25? To find out, check out the article on 25 most expensive countries in the world in 2017 and let me know what you think.
