    I agree to the point on Indian ghetto's. However, I think one of the requirement is availability of vegetarian food supplies (this is probably unique to India). I probably think this would be one of the few nations where veg food is cheaper than non-veg food and the number of people eating veg food is quite high compared to any other nation. Hence, when you have a sizeable Indian community there is a comfort of getting food supplies.

I would like to explore the same locality as you all. Living with Indian community offers a good support system. Hope to see replies soon.

    Hi Pushpi,
    I have few questions for you.
    1) What is the average rent in Tung Chung area. We are looking for a 2 BHK with a max budget is 20000 HKD PM. Can we get an accomodation at that budget?
    2) How far is Tung Chung from Central or Quarry Bay? My husband's work place could be in either of those places.
    Is it well connected? Do we have MRT service from your place of residence to Central / Quarry bay.
    3) Do we have English medium schools nearby. My son will start to go to Nursery. Is it near by the place of residence.
    4) Can i have your mail id so that I can connect to you one-on-one.

    Hello Sweta,

    I am from Bangalore and have just landed in HK with hubby and 20 month old daughter. Looking at properties in Olympic city and have not yet explored Tung Chung as hubby's work location will be ICC. Quite excited to see this discussion - Have you chosen tungchung to live? How do you like it? have you found a kindergarten for your son there? Are there enough things (play area, activities, playmates of same age etc ) to keep your little one engaged? I'm keen to make friends for both myself and my daughter. Appreciate any suggestions you may have for me. Thx
