A recent study by Mercer's 2011, Cost of Living Survey, took Luanda in Angola, located on the west coast of Southern Africa, to the top spot as the most expensive city in the world for expatriates. Tokyo now has the title of the most expensive in Asia and is at second place in the world. Mercer is a human resources consultancy firm.
 
Even though New Delhi ranked 85, Mumbai was at 95 and Bangalore at180 in the world, they have turned out to be the most expensive cities in India for expatriates, in the same order. One of the main reasons most Asian cities have moved up in the ranking is because although expatriate accommodation is limited, the demand is high.
 
The more popular cities like London fell to 18th from 17th last year, New York dropped to 32nd from 27th, while Singapore and São Paolo made it to the top 10 on the list.
