Cost of Living in China

Living in China is like living anywhere else in the world. Many items are cheap, especially when shopping at local markets and eating out at neighbourhood restaurants. Still, our teachers find there’s always time (and pocket change) to live a bit more extravagantly than usual. Weekly massages, monthly trips and saving money are all possible on an English teacher’s salary.
