    On June 23rd, 2024, Thai national media reported the results of Mercer’s 2024 global cost of living rankings for 226 cities across all continents, including Europe, South America, North America, Africa, and the Pacific. These findings were published on January 24th, 2024.

    The top 10 cities with the highest cost of living are:

    Geneva, Switzerland
    Basel, Switzerland
    Bern, Switzerland
    New York, USA
    London, England

    For ASEAN countries, the top 10 cities, ranked from highest to lowest cost of living compared to 2023, are as follows:

    Singapore (rank unchanged)
    Phnom Penh, Cambodia (rank 123, up 9)
    Bangkok, Thailand (rank 129, down 24)

    Several key factors influencing the global economy include inflation and exchange rate volatility, increasing economic and geopolitical instability, and various emergencies affecting utility and other essential expenses within countries, such as electricity, water, taxes, and education costs.
