Hello! Moving to HK within the next month. Where do I start??!
I'm a male 25yr old US Citizen. Please help me with any of the following questions you may have an answer for:
Living - Intend on spending about $2000-2500USD per month for 1bdrm. Will be working in Central. Mid levels or central/ sheung wan better?
Cost of Living - Intend on getting fully furnished apartment, but looks like HK is more expensive than US. How about for electronics? Should I bring my lcd tv from USA and other expensive items?
Nightlife - I hear there is a large expat community. Is it friendly and fun enough even if I don't know anyone? Will be working A LOT so not too much time to make friends.
I was thinking of bringing my girlfriend over the short term at least - is this a bad idea? she has nothing to do there except maybe take an online course? will it be easy for her to find friends?
Given all the uncertainties this decision brings in terms of career and my relationship, this is the most stressful decision of my life. Any words of wisdom / help would be greatly appreciated.
