    - great faciliites
    - a quick stroll to Whampoa where you have resto, bowling alleys, cinema, coffees...
    etc etc...
    that's the other part of hung hom which is around 15-20 mins walk from hung hom mtr, never been though.

    I really love hung hom car parking, one of the cheapest and best in whole of HK, spend HK$200 ( even on weekends) and get 3 hours free parking in massive car parking facilities in whampoa, even with HK$100 spending it's half price, hourly rate is only HK$14 per hour, that's cheaper than sheung shui and fanling parking and half the price of most places in TST or MK!!

    my parents in law lives there and I drive from fanling every weekend, hassle free 30-35mins drive and no traffic jams

    3. I think it is both far enough out of Mong Kok, TST to be a little more relaxed while close enough to enjoy when I want.

    Before I take the leap, I would love some feedback on the area and to confuse me a little more any suggestions of other areas...

    Thanks for your input in advance.

    Cheers

    unless you like to party in lkf or knutsfords steps, in general, an active lifestyle, what is your reason of living at a place close to the action? you can get twice amount of space in sheung shui/fanling than any place in hung hom

    Lived in Hung Hom for two years. I liked it, it's quiet, has some decent shopping options, good transport links with bus and MTR (and cross harbour taxi rank at the MTR). Central 15-20 mins, CWB 5-10 mins, Sha Tin 25 mins, TST 5 minutes.

    Great running track from Laguna Verde up to Avenue of Stars with a great view, even if the stretch outside Harbourfront Horizon smells like a sewer. Nice walk too down to the bars and restaurants on the strip in TST East.

    Absurd to compare it to Mong Kong, they are a million miles apart. I'd recommend it, although it's not that cheap really any more.

    Im not sure why anyone would single out Hung Hom as hideous. All of Hong Kong is one giant hideous craphole.
