This is not specific to tsing yi (because it doesn't fall into this category) but some of the responses/ the general focus on living in expat communities, or expat friendly areas.
Am I the only expat who has no intention of living in an 'expat community'? I feel like these communities force prices up unreasonably, and create an environment whereby you're very unlikely to integrate into HK culture in any way. Perhaps this is seen as a perk for some people who feel there's too much of a culture difference? But I feel part of the reason locals get given negative 'feedback' is a lack of effort to mix and learn about the culture we live in. I think until you've made an asserted attempt to understand a culture, criticising it is nothing but hypocritical.
Also there are times when I just want to go home and relax and bumping into a group of expat 'acquaintances' could lead to all sorts of alcohol related injuries!
