    The 13 months salary is to help you for tax + the monthly saving of 15% as others have recommended to get you throught the 1st year tax demand.

    Not sure how much of a party guy you are but if you start going drinking in wan chai, that 43K will not be enough LOL
    Dont get dazzeled and struck by yellow/brown fever if you're a white geezer

    If you will be buying furniture in HK don't forget to budget for deliveries, especially mattresses.

    To the OP's original question, I have made less than that in HK and had a very nice life in a nice apartment in an "expat area" - and not too long ago.
