The Worldwide Cost of Living Survey 2012 Mercer report highlighted that KL continues to offer quality living at affordable cost.
The survey covers 214 cities across five continents and measures the comparative cost of over 200 items in each location, including transport, food, clothing, household goods and entertainment. The cost of housing is also included and, as it is often the biggest expense for expatriates, it plays an important part in determining where cities are ranked.
