Crazy country to live in if you are working here
Your salary even wouldn't be sufficient to pay the rent of a normal studio
Stay away from Yerevan if you think you can work and live like a local it's a trap when you see the lower prices, the the minimum wage of 150$ A MONTH!

It's not the freezer. It just has the pronounced winter. And also, cold there feels not that cold because of low humidity and slow wind.

Who would want to live in a freezer like Armenia? Hookers are dirt cheap though an added bonus.

Apartments are now much more expensive, I would say 1000$ for 2 bedroom in the city center.

Apartment prices in the small center is minimum 2000$ and it is in the case when the overall building is in awfull condition. If you want to buy apartment in the small center in the building with normal or good condition it will cost you minimum 2500$ . In fact in new building constructions apartment proces might be reach till 3200$ which is crazy expensive for locals and most of that apartments will buy either foreigners or rich armenians from diaspora.

"Yerevan will normally cost 300,000 Amd just for food and transportation"

I live in one of the most expensive cities in North America and my food and transportation cost is not even half of that. Do you have a chauffeur and eat three meals a day at Dolmama?

103,250 Amd isn't nearly enough to live per month in Yerevan or anywhere else in Armenia.A minimum of 175,000 per month would cover food,and transportation and a visit to a club twice per month. I've live in Yerevan 21 years now so I know how much things cost. Yerevan will normally cost 300,000 Amd just for food and transportation.Prices on Numbeo are a joke.Armenia isn't as cheap as people think it is.

Is 103250Amd sufficient to live per month in Armenia for a student who has paid rent and fees.

Yes I see the difference in cost of living verses monthly net salary.But why would anyone want to live in Armenia in the first place?

So the monthly living costs for a single person is 208,868 AMD yet the Average Monthly Net Salary (After Tax) is 154,884 AMD. Anyone else see the problem here?
