It should come as no surprise that some cities are more expensive than others. From cost of living to accommodation prices, and whether you live there or you're just visiting, you should be prepared to fork over a little more cash in some parts of the world.

According to new information from Bloomberg Index, the trend holds true even for Airbnbs. Contributing to the high cost for Airbnb rentals are a combination of high hotel and apartment costs, as well as strong tourism.
