    Moving from India to HK

    Hi,

    I'm moving from India to HK in October. I have the following queries: Can someone clarify these:

    1. I have a family with a 2 year old kid. My office is located in Central. Which is the best to look for a lease? Is DB a good option?

    2. Any good websites, wherein I can search for properties in HK on rental basis?

    Thanks

    DB is fine if the office is in Central.

    For properties, here are some sites:

    Moving to HK

    Dear Priyanka,

    Thanks for your reply. But I suppose, the travelling time from South Horizon to Central takes almost 70 minutes by Bus. Is there any MTR available from South Horizon to Central?

    Thanks,
    Arvind

    Its not that bad if you can work around the peak hours of 8-9AM and 6-8PM -- would take 20-30 mins at the max to central.

    By the way, the down side of being in South Horizon -- your business becomes the business of all those 300-400 familes that Priyanka mentioned.

    DB takes a similar amount of time to commute to central.
