My first post after lurking for over a year. I just need some insight around where I should get a serviced apartment.
I'm going to be living in HK for 5-6 months starting in October, with a possibility that I might decide to stay permanently. Because I want to experience HK from the area that I'd hope to live long-term, I'd like to stay somewhere on the Island side. My company's office is in Kwun Tong on the Kowloon side-- so I've considered any area near Quarry Bay, Wan Chai, Central/Mid Levels, etc. Commute time is looking at around 30 minutes from Central or 13 minutes from Quarry Bay according to the MTR website.
That being said-- I'd love to have more western comforts nearby (bars, food, groceries) and a better chance of socializing with gals my age (I'm a married gal, 27 years old) to make my transition a little easier. Any suggestions for areas I should get a serviced apartment in?
I'd prefer a 30 minute commute or less.
thanks in advance for your help & insights!
