I'm going to be coming to HK for six months from June as a stay-at-home mother of a 7-month old baby. my husband's company will get us an apartment, but I'm not sure where we should be.

can anyone suggest a good area with parks, reasonable shops and access to transport to Kowloon Bay for my husband's work? I've been to HK as a tourist, but Nathan Rd may not be the best place to be with a baby!

very grateful for all and any advice in general on what we need to be looking for and organising. are furnished apartments common? what do they usually contain?
