World’s Most Expensive Cab Fare

World's Most Expensive Cab Fare
If you’re traveling overseas, whether for business or pleasure, you’re probably going to end up taking a cab at some point. Fortunately, you can plan accordingly by checking out the list of the most expensive cab rides in the world.
The fares below reflect a metered, 3 kilometer (just under 2 miles) ride, not including any prices tacked on for airport-to-city rides. Of course, the taxi industry isn’t exactly forthcoming, and unscrupulous drivers may claim their meters broken in order to get a higher fare. Add to that the fact that some cities will charge higher fares at night and on weekends and, well, you get the drift.
The full list of 100 cities was compiled by Price of Travel. Here are the top ten cities with the most expensive cab fare in the world.
