Dubai was recently ranked as one of the world's most expensive cities to live for expats by UBS. But that's not the full story.

How far does your money go in the UAE, and how do some of the other cities listed compare to Dubai?

We discuss in this week's Business Extra podcast. Listen below, and subscribe to the show on Apple Podcasts.

Host Mustafa Alrawi is joined by personal finance editor Alice Haine to discuss recent trends in the cost of living in the region and globally. Even though Dubai is one of the most expensive places to live, your money goes further than you might think thanks to the low-tax environment.

We also give you our top tips for managing your finances at home and abroad.
