    Violent Crime Rate

    From my research into it the HK crime rate is reported to be very low year to year but all I ever hear about is violent and blatant crimes all the time. should I be worried about moving to HK or am I getting worried over nothing?

    This is literally your last worry about moving here. If there is one good thing (there are not many) which I appreciate about this place then it is safety. Curious to know where you keep hearing this garbage from.

    There have been one or two high profile violent crimes with specific targets this year in a population of 7.5 million. Where are you getting your news from?

    Only place I’ve ever felt safer is Singapore

    To be clear, there are PLENTY of other crap you need to worry about if moving here!
