Valentine’s Day Price Index 2017: Sydney in Top 5 Most Expensive Cities Worldwide for Romance

February 8, 2017 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Online florist BLOOMY DAYS conducted the Valentine’s Day Price Index 2017 to better understand the varying global costs of celebrating romance.http://www.rembrandtbkk.com/ After observing that the average price spent on Valentine’s bouquets varied largely from city to city, the online flower retailer researched the costs of popular Valentines gifts and activities around the world, with the study revealing that location greatly impacts the cost of romance. For instance, the same Valentine’s Day gifts in Prague cost a total of US$458.28, compared to a grand total of $1316.26 in Los Angeles, USA.

To carry out the research, BLOOMY DAYS investigated costs for the most popular romantic activities and gifts in 50 cities worldwide. The Index takes into account the average costs for a dozen red roses1, a day ticket for two to a spa2, a meal and wine for two in a Michelin star standard restaurant or equivalent3, an evening for two to the movies (with snacks)4, and a night in a luxury hotel5.

Sydney, Australia ranks 47 in the Valentine’s Day Price Index, with an overall cost of $1,042.01 for all activities. This compares to Prague, Czech Republic at $458.28, the most affordable city to celebrate Valentine’s Day, whilst Los Angeles, USA is the most expensive at $1316.26. For the cost of a romantic day in Los Angeles, two people could afford all the romantic activities in Prague and still have enough money left over for return flight Los Angeles-Prague over the Valentine’s period.6
