Ever wondered how much Valentine's Day is going to cost you this year? ECA International has used its latest Cost of Living data to show how much a romantic date could cost in 26 different cities around the world.
Hong Kong has proven to be the most expensive Asian city for romance, with a date costing USD195. Singapore follows closely after Hong Kong with a date costing USD190, while a date in Mumbai would cost as little as USD103.
The romantic date includes a dinner for two followed by catching a cinema show, drinks and a return taxi ride.
The data shows that the cost of romance certainly varies depending on your location. A Valentine’s Day date in Geneva, Switzerland would set you back over five times as much as in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
ECA provides knowledge, information and technology for businesses to manage their international mobility programmes. Its Cost of Living Survey measures the cost of a wide range of goods and services used by expatriates in over 460 locations around the world.
ECA's rigorous cost of living methodology has been developed over more than 40 years. It uses a multi-source approach for collecting data, comprising a dedicated team of International Data Researchers, field research companies and expatriates working for client companies. This ensures both extensive coverage and reliable, representative results.
