Is CNY 64,000 per month (before taxes) a good salary in Guangzhou ?

Hello everyone !

This is my first post here. I've never lived in China, and tbh, I have not much clue about life in china. I have been offered a role with a pay of approx 120K USD per year in Guangzhou. And am trying to figure out the monetary equivalent of a uk life that I have been used to since the last 12 years.

I have been told that accommodation & transportation cost will be taken care of by the employer.  Am not a fancy spender, I like to cook my own meals n stuff ... I love my Scotch though :)

Can any of you living in China give me an idea about how much can be SAVED per month on this salary please ? Many thanks !

You can live like a king on 25,000 RMB/month.  A 65,000 RMB/month, You will be just fine.

For that salary I think I would want to know a lot about the job, company and visa situation. Cynical? Who me?  ;)

I guess you made a mistake.
You wouldnt be asking this question based on 120k usd/year but you could ask it based on 120k rmb/ year

@vanrox thank you.
@hotpot I did verify with them about usd, they confirmed.
@zanghfu Am a senior game developer.  The company said it will sponsor visa.

Then I guess you can make some easy calculation: average salary in Guangzhou is rmb 7k per month, you are around 10 times higher.

You won't offer a boat but it's a good start

Apart from accommodation and transport, does the package include medical insurance coverage?
Also, what is the rotation-is it once a year back to your base airport, or monthly, etc, as you may find as the year goes on you may want to visit some other place both in China or other countries (SE. Asia, India, Japan, Australia etc.), so you need agreed leave periods and flight cost provided.

I would struggle really, a housemaid in French underwear, a masseur, a cook preparing your lobster daily, limo and driver, penthouse with pool and a bodyguard is about all you will get for 64,000 per month.

I don't know how you will survive to be honest.
