You would find financial conditions very different in the Netherlands than in China, especially on one salary in the Hague. You would have to pay for everything yourself, rent, and utilities, insurances, which would easily take away 1/3 of your net salary, possibility more. Medical insurance is expensive also. You would get some child benefit, a few hundred euros I suppose, and you'd be eligible for the tax break called the 30% ruling, which would mean for 5 year (I think its just been reduced from 8 to 5 years) you would pay less tax. Bear in mind though that in NL free (non-taxable) school tuition is a part of the 30% ruling, and once that ends so does the free tuition. It is doable to manage on one salary. I lived in the south of NL and some of my colleagues did manage, but it was a struggle for them.
