The Israeli coastal metropolis of Tel Aviv is the most expensive city globally, says the latest analysis from the British Economist magazine published on Wednesday.

Tel Aviv takes the top spot from Paris, France capital, which dropped to a shared second place with Singapore. Next in the ranking are Swiss finance centres Zurich, Hong Kong, and New York.

The data was gathered by the Worldwide Cost of Living Survey from the Economist Intelligence Unit.

The Syrian capital Damascus came last in the ranking.

Berlin dropped eight places to number 50 and is the cheapest of the six German cities listed.

Frankfurt is the most expensive German city and takes 19th place.

According to the analysis, supply chain issues and COVID-19 measures that limited production and trade have contributed to the rising cost of living in many cities.

Transport costs saw a sharp rise due to rising oil prices.

Leisure, tobacco, and personal hygiene also saw significant price increases.

The survey compared 173 countries by looking at more than 200 products and services.
