It is difficult to imagine that the city in which three decades ago was raging civil war, fall into the list of the most expensive cities. But it was a civil war in Angola, and therefore in Luanda has led to this situation. The infrastructure of the city was virtually destroyed, so now the goods and services are very expensive.
Angola on the one hand a country of contrasts, first here a huge amount of energy reserves, and secondly the high level of poverty. Luanda, being the capital, attracts many foreign companies who are interested in supply of energy. But the presence of potential investors not change the situation radically, many products are difficult to access, and enjoy the benefits of civilization, like going to the gym or the hairdresser can only fairly wealthy citizens.
Especially difficult for foreigners who are trying to settle in Luanda. Rent an apartment here costs fabulous money, about $ 7,000. The cost of food is not too small: 5.2 dollar is worth a dozen eggs, rice is difficult to find cheaper 4.6 dollars per kilogram.
Luanda, however, is quite attractive for tourists.
True, it is interesting not only for its history and unique attractions that the city is not too little, and the special nature, incredibly rich flora and fauna. Travelers will be able to enjoy the beauty of the rainforest and savanna, and meet a lot of wild animals, such as lions, leopards, elephants, zebras, antelopes.
Residents of the city guard and honor its history. Tourists can visit a museum or a museum Dongdu Angola, which presents historical and ethnographic monuments. History Luanda associated with Portugal as well as Angola emerged from its composition is relatively recent.
