I meant about the standard cost of living, and the services cost less in Pakistan than in Germany.
That’s correct what would cost in Germany 500 euros, it would be the same value in Macedonia (phones, computer parts). We have only Burger King, which is about 20-30% cheaper than Burger King in Greece (McDonald’s closed their shops, due to a licensing dispute). If you were to get a beer in a bar in Germany, you would have to pay more than 3 euros, while in Macedonia you can get the same beer in a bar for 1.5 euros. Starbucks in Serbia is somewhat cheaper to Starbucks in Greece.
I did an experiment because I live in the capital city, I have gone for a week in a smaller, less-populated city. Although, the prices in the supermarkets are almost the same. I have spent less, than what I spend in my city. Cup of coffee costs $2 in my city, while in the smaller city it was $0.7. A meal at a fancy restaurant in my city would cost you $30, while in the smaller city you would be good to go with $10.
You can take Bratislava and Vienna for comparison. Just 80 KM’s away.
Hotel in Vienna, $80 per night, hotel in Bratislava $35 per night. I talk about the same hotel chain in a hotel with the same stars.
In general, the food prices in the supermarkets branded clothes, and tech stuff cost the same in every country.
NOTE: Having a salary of $800 in Macedonia is awesome and you can do a lot of stuff. Earning those $800 in Germany would be nothing.
Locally made stuff here are 3x cheaper.
