Rising costs in cities are often driven by a vibrant job market attracting skilled workers with high wages, said Anthony Breach, an analyst with the British think tank Centre for Cities - which was not involved in the study.

Meanwhile Turkey's Istanbul has become considerably less expensive, dropping 48 places to joint 120th on the list - due in part to the decrease in value of Turkish lira.

Moving up the list is Bulgarian capital Sofia, which has climbed 29 spots to shared 90th position, thanks to an increase in the price of groceries, utilities and recreation.

"We note converging costs in traditionally more expensive cities like Paris, Singapore, Zurich, Geneva, Copenhagen and Hong Kong". On the flip side, numerous cheapest cities to live in are experiencing some form of political or economic disruption, which means they're less livable and carry a level of risk, per the BBC.

The world's cheapest cities include Caracas (Venezuela), Damascus (Syria), Tashkent (Uzbekistan), Almaty (Kazakhstan), Karachi (Pakistan), Lagos (Nigeria), Buenos Aires (Argentina) as well as Bengaluru, Chennai and Delhi.
