The big mac index for GCC ranges from $3.57 to $4.9 with Qatar and UAE respectively at either end of the spectrum. #justsaying

Being the cheapest place to live in is not by itself a good thing.

The cheapest 3 places to live are all in Pakistan. 3 of the most expensive 4 are in Switzerland.
How many people in Kuwait would like to move to Pakistan? Or would they prefer Switzerland?

I’d much rather live in Pakistan than Switzerland. The Swiss are notoriously racist and socially regressive.

Pakistan also boasts the same beautiful vistas as Switzerland but their food is a thousand times better.
