First off thanks for your help in advance.
I'm a 29y/o Aussie/Asian guy who will be moving to HK later in August. Looking to get some advice on best places for me to look for an apartment given my situation.
My job is based in Kwai Hing, and on the weekends I will be primarily hanging around the areas of Causeway Bay/Wan Chai/Central/TST for the shopping and nightlife..
Ideally the place I want to get is a happy medium between getting to work and getting to the busy shop/drink/eat areas. Currently in perth, my commute to work is about 15-20 mins by bus, so I wouldn't want to have a massive long 1hr commute to work every morning and afternoon.
It has been suggested to me before to stay in either Tsuen Wan, Cheung Sha Wan or Lai King.
I really don't mind staying out of the hustle and bustle as long as there's food/groceries/parks around. Yet I would love to be close to nightlife in case I have those big nights and need to stumble home.
My budget isn't all that great since I have to pay for a mortgage back home, but I am thinking around 6000hkd for a sharehouse with another person.
What are your thoughts?
