Hey! First post
I'm 23, and moving to HK in June this year for a one year assignment (may/may not stay longer). My office is going to be in the Central Business District and I'm looking for a nice place to stay which is either close to office or well connected. Not too fussed about staying on the island. My package is about 30k a month gross, so I'm keen to keep my rent below 10-12k a month. My priorities in selecting accommodation are -
- Close to work (i.e. on the island) or well connected by public transport
- Shouldn't be a really tiny place. I think 300-400 sq ft would be a minimum.
- Shouldn't be too far out. Definitely going to party on the weekends
- Not fussed about the presence/size of the kitchen
Given this background, what neighbourhoods do you recommend looking at? I'm probably going to make a trip to HK next month to get a feel of the place and fix up my apartment, so want to short list areas to look in. I'm also a fitness freak so having a good gym in the neighbourhood will be a massive plus!
Also, which are the best agencies I should contact? I've checked out spacious.hk but most of what they had was disappointing
