Mumbai, India’s financial hot spot is home to the world’s highest-earning expats. So if you’re looking to earn big you should relocate to Asia.

According to a HSBC survey of 27,587 expats from 159 countries and territories, Mumbai has average yearly expat earnings of $217,165, more than double the global average.

Other Asian cities are also in the top 10, with Shanghai in fourth place (average expat income of $202,211), Jakarta in eighth ($152,589), and Hong Kong in ninth ($148,410).

According to Bloomberg, the data also show that cities where expat wages tend to be highest are also often associated with high living costs. So there’s that. I guess I’ll unpack now.
