Can a family of 4 live with USD$ 1500 a month? We won't be paying for rent.
Mike on Nov 30, 2017:
the person who said that they live comfortably as a family of 5 with only a 24k monthly income must not be aware of some of their expenses or they must not be renting a house. the average apartment in quezon city is around 15k to 20k i do not see how they survive with 24k monthly.

.hey Robert...

if you have $1,597 every month, you can live like a king here in The Philippines!

100 US Dollars can get you a plane ticket to the other end of the country, to enjoy a royal life on the beach, for a week!!!

It's more fun in the Philippines!!!

.hooowwwwly craaaaap!

I am a Filipino and currently living inside Quezon city (North Fairview, Quezon city) and I gotta tell you...
these figures are STUUUUPID!!!

If these figures here are true, then we'd be dead long ago. These figures aren't real.

I and my family (of 5... dad, mum, 2 sis, niece) live under one roof, my family earns about 24 Thousand Pesos a month (that's around 500 US Dollars) and lemme tell you, we live as one big happy family.

everything we need comes off the store/market. And btw, we have our own house.
we pay the bills (electric = 1,200Pesos[that's less than 30 USD], water=500Pesos[10 USD], internet=1000Pesos[20 USD])

So, from a Filipino standpoint, anyone with 500 US Dollars can live comfortable in Quezon city.

(man, numbeo! Just where did you get these numbers from, conned tourist millionaires???)

Hey Robert, you probably won't even spend half of that if we have a similar idea of what "a rather simple lifestyle" means. Have a good one.
Robert on Apr 14, 2017:
I received $1597 a month in social security. I've been told I can live very comfortably on that amount in the Philippines by friends there. I want to live in Quezon City. I live a rather simple lifestyle. Could I do it on that amount?
