The average salary is low in Hangzhou.Expect for a few elites,most people with higher education eran less than 10k RMB,other people without higher education can only eran 4k-6k RMB, but the price of food and daily necessities is very high。It's diffcult for ordinary people to live,buying an apartment is almost impossible.

I don't know if the salary is accurate. As far as I konw, the student just graduated from one of the second best Universities in Hangzhou(ZUT, HDU, ZNT, etc) can only earn 7000-8000 RMB per month(Source: University Employment Report), and it is pre tax. So I'm afraid normal citizen in this city can not earn as much money as those students do. I mean normal students, not those employees in Ali or Netease or other elites of network enterprises.

I think the data is not accurate enough. The data is more likely for the very downtown area or for the central business district or the blocks not far from that area.
For a local resident, not living so close to the CBD , usually spending more than half an hour on single commuter everyday , the cost will be much more lower. As for me , I only spend ¥15 on the restaurant for dinner near my apartment. And if you buy ingredients from local giant market, the cost will be much more lower.

At least 1500 USD ( 35-45 square meter single room + inexpensive foods + other charges ) per month,only for survival,not a good life. If wanna a decent lifestyle,need 3500 USD - 5000 USD per month .
