"The cost of living in the Netherlands is generally high, particularly in bigger cities like Amsterdam. Prices for basic necessities such as groceries and utilities are high, although wages tend to reflect this. Housing prices can be particularly expensive, but the country generally offers good value for money when it comes to transport, entertainment and restaurants. All in all, the Netherlands is a great country to live in despite its relatively high cost of living," said another expat in Netherlands.
