Israel’s richest and most expensive city, Tel Aviv is home to a number of high-tech and venture capital companies. Israel’s consumer price index rose 3.9 percent in 2009, according to the Bank of Israel. While daily expenses are high, the average rents are lower than in many other cities: about $1,440 per month for a three-bedroom apartment, according to UBS.
