    3k USD will get you about 20sqm in a well located newer building with facilities. Welcome to HK... You might want to revisit your budget or your expectations.

    Well Central is not a residential district, not sure where you consider to be more "city centre." Wan Chai? Causeway Bay? TST?

    This is why there is so much need to compromise in Hong Kong. City centre is exactly that. Right in the heart of the Central. You will not find much unless you are an absolute FAT CAT. In other cities, city centre is well understood. On here, a place like mid-levels can come up.

    I'm having a laugh if you consider this in the city centre.

    I really don't know what you're talking about.

    Central is a commercial district, there are very few residential properties available at any price point. I've never mat a "FAT CAT" who lives in Central, have you? Unless you're counting Four Seasons serviced apartments.

    Anyway this is a weird point to harp on. OP is not going to find 1600 sq m anywhere near city centre, however defined, for HKD 25K a month.

    When most intelligent people refer to the center of a big city, they mean a few sq km not a few blocks on a straight line. I think there are far more of us laughing at you for this little gem of a post

    Sure. Keep telling your selves that. I know the mid-levels and that is definitely not city centre. It is an inner city suburb at best.

    I'm having a laugh still
