These are the 20 Most Expensive Cities to Visit for Holiday


Planning your summer vacation, but don’t want to break the bank? If so, you might wish to avoid the following 20 destination as airport transfer company Hoppa has ranked them as the world’s most expensive for 2017. Hoppa’s annual survey reviewed 84 destinations worldwide, revealing the total average price of a hotel, food, drink and 2 mile a taxi journey per person per night. Interestingly, they also took the cost of a beer, a cup of coffee, and a bottle of wine into account. Because what holiday is it without some beer with lunch, wine with dinner and a strong coffee at the breakfast bar the following morning? Here’s a run-down of the top 20, to see which destination makes it to the top.

#20 Hong Kong- $141


At the lowest place of list (but within the 30th percentile Hoppa’s overall ranking) we find Hong Kong, where an average beer costs $6. Located on China’s southern coast, Hong Kong has a population of 7 million, with a Gross Domestic Product of $56,000 per capita. Its top tourist attractions include the Victoria Peak mountain, its Ocean Park, picture-perfect Lantau Island and of course, its very own Disneyland.






  • That photo of Hong Kong is a fake. There is no mountain that large anywhere near HK.

      • Tokyo is fake – I have lived here now over 20 years and unless I have been living in the wrong Tokyo. Never seen this view though my previous office in Ark Hills or Roppongi Hills give us a nice view.

    • Don’t think your statement is correct as I have been there many times and that pic looks about 100% correct. Was just there at the start of October.

      • 100% correct refers to HK. Shot was take from West side of HK Island. Regional office in One Island East had fair size hills behind our pretty tall skyscraper office tower.

  • As for #17 – Tokyo – 2 mile taxi ride doesn’t cost much as $58. It must be $15~20. I know it is still expensive.

  • Being originally from Switzerland I sadly have to agree! Cup of coffee sets you back about 5 US. No refill! Good news, service included although they still expect a tip. Coffee is excellent hmmmm.
    Go to St.Moritz and pay even more for everything.
    Neat, safe and clean country.
