For these three pillars, we are going to show you how three different types of people that have found a position through HiredinChina can have a fantastic time in China teaching whilst saving money. We have taken the average salary on our website of 22,000RMB a month and broken down the monthly costs. We have three personalities to illustrate our example, ‘Saver Sally’, ‘Traveler Tom’ and ‘Spender Simon’.
Saver Sally has come to China to take the opportunity of the extremely low living costs whilst fully knowing that the average income in China is around 4,000RMB, less than a fifth of what she’ll be earning when she’s teaching. She likely to explore the culture of her local city, eat out with friends locally and use the metro to travel to work.
Traveller Tom is about exploring Asia and wants to see something new every weekend. He’ll use Etravel Club on the weekends and fly somewhere for the national holidays. His focus is on travelling, so he’ll be saving like Saver Sally, only eating out a few times a week.
Spender Simon wants the highest living conditions available, spending nearly triple the national average on accommodation and monthly expenses combined. Fine dining, hotels in major cities, travelling, and shopping at international supermarkets for imported produce are things Spender Simon allocates his finances to.
