"By looking at the average costs of: a pint of beer, a cup of coffee, a meal for two, a bottle of wine, a hotel room for one night and taxi costs per 3km, we have been able to rank countries from the most expensive countries to the cheapest and everything in-between," the report adds.

Travel agent | 5 years ago | Reply Well, this not strictly speaking not true. Dubai offers a LOT of amazing hotels(4 and 5 Star) at around PKR 5000/- a Night(Twin Sharing) That is around PKR 2500/- Per Person a night(including breakfast) 25 dirham is more then enough for one persons dinner.(PKR 712) 8500 VISA for Dubai. 25,000-30,000 airline ticket cost(return) Dubai is very affordable.The report is flawed because Dubai offers extremely expensive hotels as well, and there are a LOT of extremely expensive hotels, so on an "average" it might seem like Dubai is expensive, But the facts are that it also offers a lot of affordable amazing hotels! Electronics, clothing, food, is cheaper in Dubai! then back home in Pakistan!!!
