Spring 2017. 850 yuan for room or 1800 for an apartment outside the centre. Subway on average 4yuan. Plain noodles from 6yuan, groceries for 1 meal from 12yuan. Cheaper twice as much as other 2nd tier cities are, Chengdu salaries are low. Like 5~6000CNY. With rent you can survive on 4000CNY, but it is the line.

13000 is enough. I think you could save about 5000 of that pretty easily. It depends on your lifestyle of course.

I'm quite frugal and spent only about 2000 per month when I was living out in a suburb. I didn't eat out much and I had roommates.
