Beet in Hamilton, Bermuda is an astounding $9.00 a bottle, which probably makes it a less popular destination for beer drinkers. They also have the most expensive milk, which averages at $16.90 a carton. And for those of you who can’t live without internet, Hamilton’s internet service costs around $140 a month!

When it comes to rent, the most expensive place to rent a home is in San Francisco, which averages at $3354 a month. Meanwhile, the cheapest of these expensive cities to get internet is surprisingly London and Hong Kong at $30 and $27 respectively.
