cost of living comparison

Postby bnkenz » Wed, 21 Dec 2011 1:35 pm

Hello,

I am looking for a free cost of living comparison calculator website. Does any one know of any sites.

I'm in the process of analyzing a move from Dallas to Singapore and need some help on evaluating my financial package.


Thanks

Use google and search for cost of living singapore...

I find this one very helpful

You can change currency to show costs converted to USD
You can compare countries too

Wow, I like these:

Volkswagen Golf 1.4 90 KW Trendline (Or Equivalent New Car) 25,425.50 € 66,585.88 € +161.89 %

Apartment (1 bedroom) in City Centre 500.84 € 1,639.60 € +227.37 %

The right one is Singapore. I guess the first estimate is not bad. It freaks me out, though. Good to know that I wouldn't need a car in Singapore. For that price, I get a Porsche instead of a Golf ;-)
