Trip Advisor has revealed that Norway is the most expensive city to spend a night in and Bulgaria is the cheapest.  Our own quintessential city, Cape Town came out in the top of the cheapest cities.

TripIndex prices out the following items in each destination to represent the cost of a night out for two people:

One night's accommodation in a four-star hotel
Cocktails for two people
Dinner for two (two courses and a bottle of house wine)
Round-trip taxi transportation (two taxi journeys of two miles each)
Prices were collected through a variety of research methods as outlined below. Prices were taken in local currencies between March and April 2013 and converted into USD on April 19, 2013.
