WILL THIS CITY BREAK BREAK YOU:
New research from Bounce has analyzed popular city break destinations on the average price of five common city break costs to reveal the most affordable and the most expensive city breaks around the world. Here are the top ten in each category.
The 10 most affordable
The number one most affordable city break on our list was the Argentinian capital of Buenos Aires, which was the cheapest country for both a bottle of wine ($3.10) and a one-way ticket on local transport ($0.27). Not only is it a seriously affordable city, but this vast, bustling city has plenty to see and do, including the stately presidential palace, Casa Rosada, the Teatro Colón opera house, and the MALBA museum.
Istanbul is the second cheapest city, with cheap prices across the board, including $0.40 for a travel ticket or a rate of $0.41 per kilometre for a taxi. Followed by Rio de Janeiro in Brazil in third place, which holds the prestigious title of the cheapest city on our list for a draught beer, at $1.34, perfect for relaxing on the Copacabana or Ipanema beaches!
h ten most expensive
Switzerland is well known for being an expensive country, even more so in major cities such as Zürich, which was revealed to be the most expensive city to visit. Zurich also has the least affordable taxis and public transport, so you might want to stretch your legs and walk if you visit!
The top ten least affordable cities are all located in either Europe or the USA, with New York being the most expensive US city to spend the weekend. Hotels in New York are extremely expensive, averaging at $301 a night, the second most expensive hotel price of all cities following Las Vegas.
