I need some help and guidance from someone who knows the country...
Grankly i only heard about angola from investors here in Qatar and thought of your suuport if possible.


#Chinasa on Jan 07, 2017 :
How can live in Luanda be this much expensive, How can a man with a family in another country living in Launda survive with his family. If the price list, listed above are real then is crazy Nigeria here is better than there why traveling to Launda when one can do better here in Nigeria.
#McD on Aug 02, 2016 :
There is no McD´s in Luanda.
Should be removed from the comparison.

Maybe replace it with KFC instead.
#Hegbouw on Aug 01, 2016 :
I did a little mistake in the comment that I've made before, I wanted to say while on 90% of Angola* you can eat and rent as low as in any other southern african country. Not Luanda, Angola!
#Hegbouw on Aug 01, 2016 :
Angola is the craziest city in the world, and it's a very awful place to live.

The prices are higher than in Switzerland with purely 3rd world salaries. Only company owners, high grade govern employers and important people can live in the centre.

Prices are as high as those ones near Central Park in Manhattan while the average salary is not even 1000$ in the city center. Because most of the people are cleaners, barmans, etc etc normal workers with low salaries.

The city is always full of traffic on daylight because all of those workers must drive or get a public transport to Luanda from their towns or small cities. The prices of eating in a restaurant are also ridiculous, I've eaten in Spain , France or Italy with the half or even a third of the price that it costs a normal meal on an average restaurant in Luanda. No joke. I don't know WTF is in the mind of the people who put there the rental prices, the sell prices, the food prices, etc.

While on 90% of Luanda you eat and rent as low as in any other southern african country, but also the salaries are like 200$ per month... still not far from Luanda, as I've said before (and other people said) a normal unqualified worker gets 300 per month while the renting of an appartment in Luanda is 1000$ per month... crazy huh?
#acs on Jul 02, 2016 :
Hi guys, i am angolan, and you can trust in the data above... We just drop one place from being the most expensive town in the world, this year, basically due to current economy - crude oil price drop 50% in the last 1.5 years, so the real state business drop too (due to demand, less expatriates), the rest of goods and services still more or less the same.
Hope this helps.
#Anonymous on Jun 22, 2016 :
Rathna, look up the price it is already up there. I lived for a year in 2005 and I hate it. Like they say it is the infrastructure which is the big problem. DO NOT EXPECT TO SEE MANY HIGH RISE BUILDINGS.
