Here Are The Cheapest Cities To Go On A Date
Dinner, a movie and bottle of wine without breaking the bank.
Planning a date can be stressful at the best of times. Not only do you have to figure out where to go, what to do and — if it’s a first date — whether or not they’ll like you (eee!), you have to consider the cost.
Dating site Elite Singles took it upon themselves to see how much a standard date would cost in 25 major cities. For the record, a standard date is a bottle of wine, two movie tickets, a mid-range dinner for two and an 8km taxi ride home. So, special occasion, first date material or even just a fun night out with your fav friend.
The website found that the most expensive city to take your partner out on a date is Oslo, where a standard date will set you back around $180AUD in very pretty krone. This is followed closely by Tokyo at $170AUD and then New York City for $160AUD.
As the eighth-most-expensive city, a standard date night in Auckland costs around $137AUD, followed by Paris at number nine ($132AUD) and then Sydney. For an average date night in the Harbour City, expect to spend around $128AUD, which doesn’t sound so bad.
Of course, the survey did look at some of the cheapest places to snag a meal with your crush and/or ball-and-chain. You can have a whole night out for two in Mumbai for $72AUD, Istanbul for $71AUD, Mexico City for $68AUD, Cape Town for $60AUD or Bogota for $57AUD.
Fifty-seven bucks for a special night out? Hell, you’ll look like an absolute baller and not even break the bank.
