Q: What's the average expat salary in Shanghai?

I can't help but think of Shanghai expats as more wealthy than those in Beijing, so I was wondering if salaries there are really higher, or if I'm just rationalising based on stereotypes....

Tough question, but here's a generalization from my experiences:

Full Expats get at least $100,000+/year and usually the cost of housing covered. Often, if they have families, their companies will pay $25k or so per year for international schools for their children. Each package is different, but I think this is a good average.

International school teachers vary a lot. I knew someone who was making about $75,000usd a year, I've known other people making about $30,000usd/year. Depends on the school and experience/degrees, etc.

Other English teachers get between $10-20k.

Locally hired expats (half-pats? me included) between $15 -$75,000, but I'd say the average is between $20-35k. Again, depends on the industry, experience, degree, etc

These are just generalizations on my part based on my experience, but I think they're fairly close.

If your talking about average compared to Shanghai and Beijing they will both be around the same average. Depending on the type of job you have and your position. 

Somebody with a Masters should be getting a little more than someone with a Bachelors and someone with a PH.D should get more than someone with a Masters. 

It doesn't always work out that way but still on average between the two cities it will be about the same. It also depends if you have jobs on the side like tutoring, grading essays online or doing part-time and full-time jobs simultaneously.

Depends on the job. Intern, Teacher, Profession. I could help you more if you elaborate. The pay is much higher in all aspects in Shanghai, but then again the living is 10 times as much as any other major city in China

 it depends on what job you want to apply for but if teaching, it depends on how many teaching hours or periods you will have. But there must always be basic salary..

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
