Whether it’s the Bamboo Wall by Kengo Kuma, a 600-year-old round earth house in Fujian, the artsy Shanghai apartment of a celebrated but banned Chinese writer, the Hong Kong residence of the owner of the China Clubs and Shanghai Tan, or an artist studio and home in the largest art community in the world, all of the interiors featured here capture intriguing facets of life in China today.About the editor: Angelika Taschen studied art history and German literature in Heidelberg, gaining her doctorate in 1986.

It is important to do your research and consider the pros and cons before you move there. There are many benefits to living in this country, especially that expats often earn a good wage and can explore Asia with ease.

What is the average monthly salary in China? The average monthly salary in China varies from one city to another, but in general, it can be appealing, even in the worst-rated cities, even exceeding that of some European cities. In contrast to these first-tier cities, China's second-tier and third-tier cities feature a lower cost of living. To put things in perspective, sharing a room in a decent area in Beijing or Shanghai can run you at least 2,500 RMB / month whereas you can have your own place in the Xinjiang capital of Urumqi for as low as 1,500 RMB / month. Granted, China isn't always a dystopian nightmare.
