This infographic shows you the best countries in which to earn money and the best countries in which to save money. The figures used are averages, so it is possible to earn more or less than what is shown here.
Salaries in Japan are high at around $2000 a month, however due to the high cost of living it is not possible to save a large portion of that money. On the other hand in China, salaries are only around $1500, but teachers are able to save a larger portion of their salary. This was one of the factors which lead to China being named as the best country to teach abroad in 2016.
Teachers in Japan also earn more than those in Korea, but as we've shown, because of the cheaper cost of living in Korea, teachers are able to save around $15 000 each year.
