NYC is top of the most expensive cities to visit

The research showed that New York ranked the most expensive city in the world for the second year in a row, while Manila replaced Kiev as the world’s cheapest holiday destination.

A hundred cities around the world were included in the research by Hoppa, and criteria included the cost of a hotel room for the night, the average price of both restaurant meals and fast food, the costs of beverages such as coffee, beer, wine, and cocktails, as well as the price of taxi fares. Flight prices were excluded.
