    Question Need help on money, life in Hong kong.. please comment!!

    I've been through other forums on this website couldn't really find information I exactly needed.

    1. How much monthly pay is required for a single person to survive in Hong Kong.
    My life style would be like- ready to share the apartment with 1 or 2 guys if its 1 bedroom hall kitchen. (Not sure how its in HK). Will cook at home but sometimes eating out should be possible.. smoke, drinks.. internet and phone bill.. May be some movie once in a month. Rest would include laundry, etc. what else ?

    Can be less than 20k depending primarily on location, what you mean by "drinks" and what you mean by "eating out"

    These aspects (rent and social life) can vary hugely in HK.

    $10k for rent (can be alot less though).
    for phone ($500), internet ($150-$200), electricity ($250 avg. a month), water ($50). Cable TV(?)($400).
    Eat out $1500 a month.
    Drinks $1200 a month.
    Travel (not taxis) $600 a month.

    Very very subjective.

    Somewhere between 20k - 200k per month.

    The question is so vague as to make any reply meaningful.

    One tip - smoking is not good for you. If you stop to do that, and you will have money save that you can use for other things.

    That's a great tip chateau. Although I wonder if the OP might have already figured that out . . . jeez

    Eating less, wash less (clothes and body (water bill)) will save you money.
