But on the flipside, there were a host of cities from only a selection of regions that trailed right at the bottom of where in the world it is the cheapest to live.
Here are the eight cheapest cities to live in around the world.
New Delhi, India
It may be the most expensive city in India to live in, but it actually ranks in the top 8 cheapest places in the world to live in because of the cost of food and utilities relative to salaries.
T=4. Karachi, Pakistan
Food, transportation, and entertainment are relatively cheap. Housing is also very cheap, partly because of high crime rates.
T=4. Chennai, India
The city has a burgeoning metropolitan area, but around 30% of the city's population live in slums.
T=4. Algiers, Algeria
The national capital is famous for its white buildings, but its dense population and slums keep prices down. Food, transport, and housing are all super cheap.
T=4. Almaty, Kazakhstan
Houses are hard to come by, but there are plenty of flats that keep the accommodation supply buoyant. And because utilities are usually controlled by a central network, you won't have any choice when your heating is turned off, which keeps costs low.
3. Mumbai, India
It is the most populated city in India with 18.4 million inhabitants and houses the most billionaires and millionaires in the country. But local food, transportation, and housing costs are relatively cheap.
2. Bangalore, India
The city is known as the IT capital of India and is fast becoming more cosmopolitan. But relative to wages, living arrangements are extremely affordable.
1. Lusaka, Zambia
It is the capital and largest city in the country and also the centre for commerce and government. It is cheap for locals to live in, but if you are an expat, accommodation, transport, and schooling costs could be very high.
