While office romance might be dying, love is still very much alive. According to ECA International, Singapore ranks second on being one of the most expensive Asian cities for romance. The report showed that a romantic evening date consisting of a dinner for two followed by cinema, drinks and a return taxi ride in Singapore could set back couples a good USD$190. Meanwhile, Hong Kong has proven to be the most expensive Asian city for romance, with a date costing $195.

In comparison, Geneva, Switzerland tops the list, where a date could amount to $295; while the least expensive city to have a date would be in Tashkent, Uzbekistan ($69) – which is close to five times less than Geneva.

On that note, here are the top 10 most expensive cities for a date:

  1. Geneva – $295
  2. Oslo – $262
  3. London – $205
  4. Paris – $198
  5. Florence – $171
  6. Lisbon – $136
  7. Prague – $116
