Ex-Pat contract or local? Ex-Pat usually will have some form of allowance for living, often fairly generous. Although when I was negotiating sometime back (fell through) that particular company was not that generous and it declined to zero over a 3 year period, 100% year 1, 50% year 2, 25% year 3 as I recall. Ex-Pat salaries will also be more generous by a fair margin if your skills are in short supply.

Local contract, not so good, expect salaries considerably lower than a similar role in Europe or the US for example with less vacation time, poorer medical and worse pension arrangements.
