The world’s 10 most luxurious cities 2015

It’s Singapore! No, it’s London! No, it’s Sydney! We hear a lot of different reports about the world’s cities where your wallet takes the greatest hit, and a new analysis by Swiss bank UBS has a different take on the rankings. In “Prices and Earnings 2015: Do I Earn Enough for the Life I Want?” UBS analysts dissected the most expensive cities to live, where price levels—including rent, goods and services—are high and after-tax wages skew lower.
