My partner and I both have job opportunties in HK and although having been a few times, have no idea where would be a nice place to live (as you don't really see those areas as a tourist). I would be in working in Sha Tin and she would be in central, we are both quite outdoorsy and ideally would be near somewhere where we can run (is that possible with smog?) or generally be outside somewhere nice quite quickly. We are not big party animals but like good restaurants and coffee shops. Budget ideally not more than 30k, any suggestions of areas or even condos to get an idea most welcome.
P.s. is it worth buying a car?
