If your company provides health insurance that's very good.

The ABC mall is located in Ashrafieh. Hamra and Ashrafieh are good neighborhoods to live in.

A non furnished 200 square meter apartment in those areas will cost 700 - 800 USD (depending whether it has a parking - Air conditioned etc...)

A furnished apartment with similar surface in the same areas will cost 800 - 1000 USD (depending also on different services offered).

Regards

Hi, I would say that you need something like 3000 $ for a family of 3 if you want to enjoy your life, I live on my own and I spend merely 3000 $ a month wihout paying rentals but I included the price of fuel, if you try to limit your expenditure, it will be easy, you just need to start cooking at home and decreese your pleasure in nightlife ;).... I am sure you will enjoy life in Beirut.
