SALARY & COST OF LIVING IN CHINA
In China, cities are sometimes grouped in tiers, based on GDP, administrative level, infrastructure, income level, population size, business opportunity, and so on. Tier 1 consists of cities such as Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Guangzhou. In these cities, you’ll find higher-paying jobs but the cost of living is also relatively high. New Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities are somewhat similar to Tier 1 but you have a bit more leeway in terms of savings while still reaping the benefits of living in a somewhat international city. This includes cities such as Chengdu, Hangzhou, Chongqing, Wuhan, and Xiamen. Tier 3 cities are considered a bit more rural, smaller and include cities such as Shantou, Huzhou, Yancheng Weifang, Baoding, and so on.
