I need some advice on where and how to live. My situation is this: I will be studying as an exchange student at CUHK this fall and spring (a total of approx. 9 months). My fiancée is coming with me and will look for work in HK so staying in a dorm room at CUHK is unfortunately not an option for us. We have looked around on the internet and think that an apartment in Ma On Shan or Shatin seems to be a good choice. But..
Will we have problems renting an apartment in HK? We are from Sweden, and here we have pretty good financial support for students - but do you think landlords will understand this or will they not rent to us until my fiancée has found a job?
I've understood that serviced apartments might be a better option when renting for a shorter period of time. But is it even possible to find one with a budget of 10K/month?
Thankful for any advice you might have!
