Mercer has released their cost of living Report 2014. In there it shows as well the most expensive cities to live in in the Middle East.
|Most Expensive Cities for Expats (ME)|
Looking at this we have just moved from the second to the third most expensive city in the Middle East. I would probably have never expected that Beirut is even more expensive than Dubai.
Kuwait coming in on 8 is no real surprise, compared to here I feel since years I had a higher purchase power in Kuwait compared to here on an almost equal basic salary.
You can read the full report here on the official Mercer website (LINK).
