Singapore has been dubbed the world's most expensive city to live in for the fifth year running.
The city state marched in ahead of New York, London and Los Angeles, which didn't even feature in the top 10 priciest places in the Economist Intelligence Unit's (EIU) Worldwide Cost of Living 2018 survey.
The EIU's annual ranking compares the prices of over 150 items in 133 cities around the world, such as bread, wine, cigarettes and petrol. It is designed to help hiring managers calculate fair salaries when relocating their employees overseas.
Singapore's top ranking is reflective of a regional trend, with the costs of living picking up across parts of Asia as their economies expand. The Southeast Asian financial centre was joined in the top 10 by Seoul, which ranked in seventh position, as well as Hong Kong.
However, some of the world's cheapest cities are still in Asia, such as India and .
Meanwhile, the weakening of the U.S. dollar in 2017 caused New York and Los Angeles to slip to 13th and 14th positions, respectively.
Bangalore, Chennai, Karachi and New Delhi all featured among the top 10 cheapest locations this year.
They were joined by Damascus, Caracus, Almaty, Lagos, Algiers and Bucharest.
