Hi there, I will be moving to Hong Kong in March from Denmark for work and was hoping for some advise on the below from the experts! For context I am a Dutch and am moving there myself (w/out family).
Housing Location - my expat contract comes with up to 70,000 HKD per month in housing allowance which I think is quite good. Ive been looking at places in Central, Mid-levels, Sheung Wan, Wan Chai and of course Kowloon. Any tips here? Recommendations? Places to avoid?
Salary - I should be receiving around 70,000 HKD per month net (after tax) in salary which includes hardship, mobility and cost of living allowance. Is this pretty standard for Hong Kong or more on the high end? My company will also pay for insurance and other benefits. FYI this is a director role which traditionally requires around 7-10 years work experience i believe.
Meeting people - having just been living abroad I would might like to meet other expats/foreigners and also some locals; any tips on groups or events that are fun and are recommended to join (i.e. Internations)? Any good places for sports like Tennis?
Appreciate the input! Any other tips also appreciated!
