We're very eager to move to HK from all we've read and researched. Our objectives for the trip are to find an area where we'll like to live (we'll feel it when there I suppose), a decent school that still has openings (!) and otherwise general discovery of the immediate place for now (with agency and on our own too). Not sure yet if our starting point will be my place of work, school or just area we like. But everything's so reatively close that it may not matter. Although we're favouring HK Island North.
And I did like your Jan thread merchantms. And your visit and agent advice, Siu King, East_coast and HK_Katherine. Thanks.
