It really depends on your level of experience, qualifications and the type of industry you want to work in. I guess your location also plays a role. I think on the whole, 10,000 RMB is a nice round figure to aim for if you're just starting off. Of course, if you've previously enjoyed excecutive/managerial level jobs at home with many years of experience or are an expert in a certain field (like engineer or architect for example) you should be aiming much higher (30-50,000 RMB/month). But again, it's a very general question so it really depends on various factors...

Teaching: Average salary for teachers in Yunnan Province is about 3,000 RMB per month.. Inner Mongolia is about 8,000 Per Month. Sichuan is about 5,000 Per month.. This is only the average though.. some schools pay really well, and others, well, just don't. It depends on where you live, the cost of living in that area, and the availability of Foreign teachers.

That being said, I work mostly in the entertainment industry (Films/Music/etc) so I make a bit more than those salaries... I have made anywhere from 700RMB-2000RMB for singing 2 songs at an event... like 6 minutes work!

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
