The 8 Cheapest Cities in the World to Live In

The Economist Intelligence Unit's (EIU) report titled "Worldwide Cost of Living," gives an eye-opening ranking about how expensive or cheap it is to live in the world.
After analysing a wide-range of data — from food and fuel costs to salaries — the EIU put together a ranking of the most expensive and cheapest cities in the world to live in.
The list includes 133 countries, and naturally some of the world's key financial hubs, like London and New York City, ranked near the top the list.
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
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
T=4. Algiers, Algeria
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.
