Tokyo remains the most expensive city in the world in terms of cost of living, a report released Tuesday by the Economist Intelligence Unit revealed.

After Tokyo came Osaka, Oslo, Paris, Copenhagen and Zurich, with the top six remaining unchanged. In contrast, no cities in the United States feature in the top 20, with New York dropping from 13th in the previous survey to 23rd. At the bottom of the list was Tehran, with Manila and Mumbai above it. The survey compared the cost of a basket of goods and services in dollar terms from 124 cities worldwide to provide guidance for the calculation of executive allowances.
