I saw a furnished 1 bed flat for 6k when I was in db last year - prices have gone up since then but I suspect stuff is still available.
^^^Wow thats better than I expected... Hopefully didnt go up too much since then.
ALso with the regular typhoons is it reliable to get the ferry to work during this weather? (This was a bit of my concern).

Ha ha. If there is a typhoon NOBODY goes to work.

Some of the brits on this site to pride themselves on going to work during signal 8. Apparently that is how the empire was built or lost or something like that ....
I meant in India actually (it's a sort of running difference of opinion between KIA and me on the legacy of the British Empire).
(But the MTR does continue to run in HK during a typhoon.)
But if you're considering Discovery Bay maybe also look at Tung Chung. It's similarly located but has a decent enough MTR link and feels a bit less like an expat-hole.
You can get something in Causeway Bay for $10k. Possibly a small (450-500sqft) apartment in an old building. If you're lucky, a liveable 600sqft apartment... I lived in Causeway Bay a few years back and paid around $7k for a quite nice 650sqft apartment, but I suspect the same place today would cost $10-12k.
You could probably get something quite acceptable (by HK standards) around Quarry Bay/North Point for $10k though.
