    • I am an American ex-pat who just just retired in Qingdao, China, my wife’s home city. We bought a nice home in a highrise in an upscale area 2 years ago for $100.000. There is no property tax and utilities are very cheap. We live an upper middle class life on about $800 a month and have money left over to travel. We don’t touch our savings. A nice 2 BR apartment is $350 a month if you don’t want to buy. Public transportation is great. The bus costs 12 cents. A 45 minute taxi ride is $5. Qingdao is modern, safe, beautiful and clean.
