Hong Kong regained pole position in the unflattering ranking after being bumped to second place by Turkmenistan’s capital Ashgabat last year.

Ashgabat was a rare exception in a top-10 usually dominated by some of the world’s most renowned business and financial hubs. Hong Kong is also joined by four cities from Switzerland, a country notorious for its high incomes and even higher prices.

Tel Aviv, New York City, Singapore, Tokyo and Beijing complete the top-10 in this year’s ranking, which is published to help multinational companies devise fair compensation plans for their expatriate employees.
