Us South Africans know we've got it good when it comes to comparing food and alcohol prices to the rest of the world - but how good do we have it really?

Transport comparison website Hoppa crunched the numbers on which cities have the cheapest and most expensive beers, wine, food, coffee, cocktails and Big Macs in the world.

These are probably what eats up your budget the most while travelling, and the cost of food and alcohol can help give you a rough estimate of what your daily spend would be.

But South Africa still made it on one cheap list - cocktails! The Mother City placed third for cheapest, with the City of Gold right on its heels. 

Africa also came out on top for cheapest beers - with Dar es Salaam in Tanzania and Kampala in Uganda reigning supreme.

The Middle East understandably sucks when it comes to any alcoholic beverage's price, while Nice in France was surprisingly in the top 5 for the cheapest bottles of wine around the world.

Buenos Aires not only had the cheapest cocktails in the world, but also the cheapest bottle of wine, while Ljubljana in Slovenia has the cheapest coffees and Tunis in Tunisia has the cheapest fast food.
