Q: Cost of food in Zhongshan, Guangdong

I am thinking of moving to Zhongshan in the near future and was wondering how much food like 'chicken breasts' and 'eggs' cost at the wet market there. I'd just like to get a rough idea of the cost of living before I move there.

I also check online that burgers at Hooley's cost 98rmb and at oven baked pizzas at il Bel Paese cost 108rmb. Are those regular prices for food at Western-owned restaurants there?
Thanks  wink

Google/Bing/Baidu is an excellent resource for determining Cost of Living.

The prices are typical of western food in Zhongshan.....though you might get a Chinese steak for 50-70 in a Chinese western restaurant in ZS. There aren't that many real western style places. Yellow Submarine does cheaper pizzas which are Pizza Hut level but edible. 

 

If if you want cheaper beer in a noisy bar then head to Friends bar near the Fuhua hotel. Hooleys is bloody expensive, Guangzhou bar prices! A round for 6 last Saturday night cost me 260 & that was with a 10% off VIP card! 

 

Wet market food prices are comparable to anywhere else in Guangdong. 

 

Zhongshan is a nice city but how did you come across it?

If you have to ask, it means you cant afford it.

 

Unless you have a trust fund of course. If that is the case dude, go fill your boots. A year off work? Wow.  But do us a favour, don't boast about it.

Thanks for the comments so far. After reading my question again, it seems like I was asking for too many details, so I've updated it to shrink it a bit.  smiley

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
