NSW electricity bills may be on the rise, but a night out in Sydney remains a cheaper option for British tourists than living it up in London.
Travel website TripAdvisor has ranked popular tourist cities according to how far the British pound will take you on a night out.
And although Sydney is ranked in the top ten most expensive cities, eight other metropolises are even more excessive.
The figures are based on the combined costs for two people of one night in a four-star hotel, cocktails, a two-course dinner with a bottle of wine, and taxi fares.
With hotel prices playing an important role in determining the rankings, European cities remain the most expensive for a night out with seven of the top ten locations.
London holds the top spot with Oslo, Zurich, Paris, Stockholm, Moscow, and Copenhagen all featuring on the list.
New York (sixth), Sydney (ninth), and Singapore (tenth) were able to break the European stranglehold on the list.
Unsurprisingly Asian cities dominated the cheapest cities for a night out.
Hanoi takes out top spot for the least expensive city, with Beijing, Bangkok, Budapest, and Kuala Lumpur rounding out the top five.
