prices

Decided to keep track of things in Shanghai (prices in RMB). Interesting what’s expensive and what’s not. I’m going to leave this as China-only list, because if I started listing prices of things in New York as well, that’d just be too depressing.

  • bus fare – 2
  • bottle of water – 2
  • instant noodles – 2.4
  • Tsingtao beer (600 mL) – 4.7
  • McDonald’s cheeseburger – 6
  • postage (letter to US) – 6
  • counterfeit DVD – 9
  • counterfeit novel – 10
  • AAA batteries (6) – 15.5
  • ream of printer paper – 17.9
  • Burger King Whopper – 18
  • Kraft box mac and cheese – 21
  • cafe mocha (small) – 28
  • cheddar cheese (8 oz) – 29.9
  • Nutella (440 grams) – 48

  1. I’m a swapbot swapper coming by to see your blog. It certainly is interesting to see Shanghai’s prices but I don’t know the exchange…so now I gotta go look them up just so I know! Do you ever mention what took you to Shanghai?
