We think about cost of living all the time, especially when we’re looking to move from one location to another. The folks at Movehub have compiled some awesome data that forces us to take a look at the entire world. This infographic shows the difference in living costs in different countries represented by different colors. And Yes, there are some surprises.
Countries that seem surprisingly expensive to me include Venezuela, Kuwait, Gabon, Congo, and Suriname. The dark colors of Papua New Guinea and Burundi must be a glitch, as these are two of the poorest countries in the world. Countries that seem cheaper than I thought they were include the US, Egypt, Austria, South Africa, and the UAE.
