Expat Cost of Living – South Asia 2014
  • Male most expensive in this region
  • India has six cities in the top ten most expensive
  • Thimphu remains cheapest

Male is the most expensive location in South Asia and 344th globally. Statistics published by the National Planning Department show an increase in inflation of 2.7%, with price hikes on fish, rent, vegetables, bread, cereal and milk, while furniture has dropped. A kg of Apples will cost US$2.35, a regular cappuccino US$1.63, a three bed apartment in a central position approximately US$2 400 per month and US$4,500 for a private international high school.

Despite the Rupiah losing more than 13% against the US Dollar in the past year, Indian cities continue to dominate the top ten cities in South Asia. Mumbai, New Delhi, Kanpur and Surat are in fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh most expensive cities in the region respectively.

Colombo in Sri Lanka is the second most expensive city in the region and Dhaka in Bangladesh the third most expensive. The Maldive, Bangladesh, and Sri Lankan currencies have all fared far better in the past year compared to the India Rupiah which has contributed to the shift in the relative cost of living between these countries.

The least expensive city and country to be an expat in South Asia is Thimphu in Bhutan.
