I'm moving to HK end of Aug to pursue my studies for a year. After many hours of online research I have decided to stay in a serviced apartment for a month or so first, to get a feel of HK, then during that period look for a more permanant place.
I'll be studying in HKUST (clearwater bay), and while I do like the nice quiet of Sai Kung I think I prefer the bustle of urban life (I also want to mingle with the locals, maybe learn a thing or two from them). For those reasons I think the best place for me would be Tseung Kwan O, and somewhere around there maybe (Hang Hau, Po Lam?) I also know that there's a bus to HKUST from the Diamond Hill MTR station, so I guess Diamond Hill, Kowloon Tong, Choi Hung, etc. are good points too.
My question now is, are there serviced apartments within the areas mentioned? I've been looking for this info online but can't seem to find any. Note that being a student, my budget is very limited (3K-4K, maybe 5K max). I hope there's some serviced apartments for me there...
Thanks in advance!
