Q: How much does it cost to send your kid to an international school in Beijing or Shanghai?

I have a few older expat friends living in Beijing and Shanghai with young children attending international schools. I don't dare ask them how much they pay. I think their companies pay for them.

It depends on the school & the age of the child.  My boys attend an American school and it runs about 70k per year, per kid.  For grade school level and above, it is 120k per year, per kid.

I have heard prices ranging from 50-250k per year, per kid depending on the school, its location and the quality of the education.

School fees paid in China are tax deductible for Chinese taxes which makes a big difference..... (unless you are from the US where you have to pay taxes back in the US this may not really help so much...) surpriselingly is that many people don't know this and just fork it up each year. (there are other deductions available too.....)

That aside even after tax deduction it is expensive and it can hurt you financial...for many.

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
