    Working in Shenzhen - where to live?

    Hi all,
    First post to this forum. I will move to HK in September with my wife, child (1 year) and two dogs. I will work in Shenzhen so which area would be the best one with following terms:

    - suitable for dogs
    - close to MTR and Shenzhen border (but not too far from city...)
    - peaceful
    - village type living preferred

    I have searched that Tai po (Tai po market) could be one. What about Fanling or Tai Wo?

    All comments welcome!

    Where in SZ will you be working? Can try Tuen Mun or Yuen Long area with village houses there.

    why not shueng shui, slightly cheaper than tai po ( maybe a thousand HK$ off), plenty of choice, fanling could be a good choice

    Why not Shenzhen? I'd be a lot easier and cheaper.
    Its not the backwater it used to be and has a decent sized expat population along with the expat trappings...

    Well he can bring the dogs into china but they can never leave. It is the hotel california for pets. There is a 6 month quarantine which no owner in the right mind will subject their loved pets.

    Well, good question. Everyone has recommend Hong Kong so far. Maybe dogs would be problematic in Shenzhen.
