I have been indicated similar 40k monthly, medical and life insurance, flight home for wife and i yearly, discretionary bonus, relocation to be discussed... job is development manager on a masterplanned residential community construction project. General advice given to me on the forum was that this is a good amount for a couple no kids to live on very comfortably and put some money away...

What industry and position are you in?

Is your partner going to be working too?

She will. This is a total for both of us.

For a couple with no kids you will live quite comfortably on that amount. Whether it's in line with your field I do not know, what do you (both) do?

Your relocation allowance is twice what I got - you could just completely refurnish your new apartment for that and not bring a single thing with you

3 weeks hotel is not enough, try for 5 weeks. Are they giving you accomodation allowance.

I can extend hotel if required.

Housing allowance is included and is enough.

I was thinking of the Gardens as prices seem good.

The Gardens have a long wait list- so I would add your name to it if thats what you are after.

It is a huge relocation package!!

Figure looks doable for 2 single people- though I agree- I think you will need longer than 3 weeks to find your feet/house hunt etc.
