Hong Kong is the world's most expensive city for expats, leapfrogging Angolan capital Luanda in the annual chart compiled by consultancy firm Mercer.

Luanda, which had consistently topped the list in recent years, fell in the ranking owing to the weakening of its local currency. Zurich and Singapore were third and fourth on the list, unchanged from a year ago. Tokyo rose to fifth.
The survey is designed for companies to calculate expat workers' allowances.

香港位居全球生活成本最昂贵城市榜单第一名

It weighs up the cost of living in 209 cities across the world, comparing the cost of more than 200 items in each location, including housing, transport, food, clothing and entertainment.

Kinshasa was ranked sixth, appearing in the top 10 for the first time, followed by Shanghai, Geneva, N'Djamena, and Beijing.
Mercer said that rankings were affected by "volatile markets and stunted economic growth in many parts of the world".
The world's least expensive cities for expats, according to the cost of living survey, is the Namibian capital Windhoek, followed by Cape Town.
