Taipei ranked 26th in this year’s “Club Sandwich Index,” making it one of the most affordable destinations in the world, online reservations service Hotels.com said.

The index uses the cost of a club sandwich in a hotel as a barometer of affordability. It provides travelers with an indication of the cost of living in their destinations, Hotels.com said.

Making its first appearance in the index this year, Taipei was the third-cheapest destination among the world’s 28 major cities.

According to the survey, a club sandwich cost an average of US$11.37 in Taipei, slightly higher than US$10.54 in Mexico City and US$9.11 in New Delhi.

Geneva was the most expensive city, with a club sandwich costing US$30.45.
