Hi there! I am moving to HK in September and beginning to think about accommodation and the best neighbourhoods in which to live. I'm going to be working in Times Square in Causeway Bay, and would like to live very close to work, as I predict I'm going to be working Extremely long hours. I have a $11,500 budget for an apartment (not including utilities), but of course something cheaper would be fantastic (more money to travel!).
Of the triumvirate of location, price and size, location and price are most important - as long as it's 350 sq ft or larger, I'm fine on size.
Do you think my budget's sufficient to find a place of that size for a single woman in a vibrant district? It would be great to live in a fairly hipster neighbourhood with a lot of young people around. I've been looking at Wan Chai, but would love any recommendations too! Thanks in advance for your help, and please let me know if I'm being unrealistic so that I can adjust my expectations
