Traveling all over the world can put a dent in your pocket. Some places more than others. Today’s list is of the latter category. These places might be slightly harder to tick off your bucket list, due to their soaring prices.

The figures shown are based on research conducted, which takes into account the approx cost of a first-class hotel for 2 people, two restaurant dinners, taxi rides, public transport tickets, and some other facilities.

Keep in mind, these numbers factor in the bare minimum needs and DO NOT include flight tickets or visas.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the big apple features in this list. If you factor in a US visa and the cost of flight tickets, New York might probably jump to the top of the list.

6. Helsinki

Helsinki

It’s quite possible you haven’t heard much about Helsinki, Finland’s southern capital. That could be because not a lot of people go to Finland on vacation and one of the reasons for it could be the high prices. But if you do have the resources, we suggest you do give Finland a chance. It’s a nice quaint little country.

Prices making you feel disheartened? Don’t be. That’s where travel companies and holiday packages come in. They make all these places slightly more affordable.
