Hello! My husband and I have just moved to Hong Kong, and are looking for an apartment. I will be teaching at Lingnan university (in Tuen Mun), and he will be teaching at Hong Kong University, so we are trying to find something suitable somewhere inbetween. Ideally, neither of us would have to commute more than 45-60 min.
Our budget is 20k. We don't have children, but are unfortunately rather acclimated to larger western-style living spaces and would prefer something fairly new and with decent sized kitchen/bedroom. We will not have a car, at least for the first 6 months or so.
So far, we have looked at Gold Coast (which neither of us were too keen on) and Yoho Town in Yuen Long. We liked Yoho Town fairly well - they showed us a 800sf flat for 13k, well within out budget. We're thinking of looking at some of the larger flats in Yoho Midtown as well; does anyone have any experience with that housing complex?
Also, are there any other potential areas we should be looking at? I like the idea of a village house but it would need to be quite close to a bus/MTR - would that be hard to find?
