Hi, new joiner here. I am on my third stint living in HK, having previously lived in Kennedy Town and Causeway Bay.
When I moved back here, I wanted to try somewhere different, preferably not too busy and crowded. I looked at a lot of places, Island Resort, Cheung Sha Wan, Mei Foo amongst others. When I asked about TKO, my local friends said it was smelly, far away and crowded.
When I visited the area I know straight away I wanted to live there. Its quieter, nice wind, not too crowded and have good shopping. In the 6 months I have been here I have never smelt any garbage smell and I believe the landfill is now covered.
I work in Central and it only takes me 35 mins on MTR to work. There is a great boardwalk, running and cycling tracks. Its a great place and very good value for money! I understand prices are starting to rise.
Unforunately I have to leave HK in December, I stay at The Wings 2 which is a fantastic development and only pay 27,500HKD for a 1055 (gross) sq ft apartment! Where else can you get that, connectivity and quality of life in HK!
