My husband, small dog and I are moving to HK at the end of July ( I know we have a bit of time) but we are totally lost on where to live (or even focus our search). My husband will be working in Aberdeen but is willing to do a 40 minute commute. We'd like to keep the budget under 18,000 a month and are super comfortable in a small one bedroom. We are both in our early thirties and love going out for fun dinners in the neighborhood or a drink but are not into partying. We've been recommended Stanley, Shuen Wan, Sai Ying Pun as well as Lamma Island. We are not super interested in Lamma Island because of the hassle of getting to work and accessibility to HK Island on weekends.
Open to all suggestions! Thanks in advance!
