Global financial services firm UBS has calculated which cities are the cheapest to visit in the world right now.

The data company did this by adding the following criteria together: 

  • The cost of a getaway for two people based on the price of an overnight stay in a first-class hotel.
  • Two dinners at a restaurant (including a bottle of wine).
  • At taxi ride.
  • Two tickets for public transportation.
  • And a rental car.

And what they found was that Cairo in Egypt provides the cheapest option, with an average cost of €277 for a city break for two, followed by Lagos in Portugal at €278, Mumbai in india at €307, Istanbul in Turkey at €320, and Johannesburg in South Africa at €338.
