    Poll: What do you consider a very good Salary in Hong Kong???

    What would you consider a very good or decent salary in Hong Kong?
    I'm asking for a friend who wants to relo back from the states.


    50K to 70K/ Month ?
    80K to 90K/ Month ?
    100 to 110K/ Month?

    Difficult to say without knowing the field, position, and the hours one has to work to get those salaries.

    For example, 50K per month would would be awesome for a relaxed, low responsibility job that requires at most 30 hours per week. But it would be a very bad deal for a stressful finance/banking job with 60+ hour weeks.

    Frankly I'd say all of them were "good" but none are "very good" - "very good" implies the top couple of percent which is way more than that.

    Would depend if I was talking to my boss or to someone else! If my boss then they are all way too low and I deserve a lot more.

    It is all relative and without more info this is pointless.

    REALLY depends on the job and the lifestyle you want. Many people live comfortably on 50-70 a month. At the same time, all are low for VP or above at an international bank, law firm, etc.

    while it may all be relative as other pointed out, I would say at 100/150 k/month it starts to be good (more if you have a family).
