Cost of living in Dalian per month in 2020? Rent price monthly for 70sq.m? Cost of normal expenses, going out drinking twice a week, eating at western or nice Chinese restaurant once a week? I live in Shenyang and live very comfortably on 4,000rmb monthly after rent which is 2,300 for a 70 sq.m 2 bed apartment.
