Hi, I am in the process of being offered a job in the Oil and Gas industry, and it is based in The Hague. I have 2 (under 8 years old) kids and wife. 1) What are the best areas for expats to live where there are nice spacious homes or apartments? and the cost/month (rent plus utilities)? 2) Are there Any Shopping malls in the Hague? (like we have in US/UK or Canada)? 3) Are there movie cinemas for Hollywood movies? 4) What is the tax ration (in Canada its 40%). How much tax on let say 140K EURO? 5) Is English schools expensive? 6) How expensive is the monthly groceries for family of 4? (in Canada/calgary its like 1000$/month) 7) is it cheaper if a person lives alone? Will be glad if any one can give me some ideas on these questions Thanks Ali

Hi there,

 I think you'll find that life in The Hague is up to the standards of any modern international metropolis, with all the amenities, facilities and conveniences that are expected. You should be able to find some useful information specific to the city on our Moving to The Hague page, whereas you can learn about general life in The Netherlands in our Culture Shock in the Netherlands, Cost of Living in The Netherlands and Education and Schools in the Netherlands pages.

For information specific to taxation, I suggest going over our Banking, Money and taxes in The Netherlands page, which should give you a general overview of what to expect when living in The Hague.

All the best for your new life in Europe!
