Just in case you were looking for the most expensive destination to relocate to, Numbeo—a firm that collects user-submitted data on countries around the world—has some suggestions.

The group compiled information on what it actually costs to live in 120 different places around the world based on the prices for 50 different services or products, including internet access, food at grocery stores, rent, and more.

MoveHub—a service aimed at making easy work of a move abroad—pulled all of the data points and compiled an infographic sharing the most expensive spots around the world.

New York City and San Francisco, though known for being expensive, didn't even make the top 10 list. In fact, no U.S. locations did.

Of the locations that did, many would fit the bill as dream destination.

Check out the 10 most expensive places to live, and start saving those pennies for your super-fancy retirement fund:

  1. Bermuda
  2. Switzerland
  3. Hong Kong
  4. Iceland
  5. Singapore
  6. Norway
  7. Bahamas
  8. United Arab Emirates
  9. Qatar
