    hi planning to move to Hongkong this month
    would be staying at a hotel first then try to find a place to rent

    Pretty much everywhere. Depends on your budget, what you want from your neighbourhood, where you work, how far you are prepared to commute, if you want to be near nightlife, if you have kids and where they go to school, etc etc.

    This question is asked a lot. One thing to bear in mind is that the chinese are very insular and it is infectious. That being the case unless you look like an expat (and that is going to throw this thread off at a tangent) you may find it harder to meet people than you first expected.

    You're asking the length of a piece of string question. Expats live all over the place depending on a number of factors. The most important one is budget. Hong Kong doesn't have expat enclaves, apart from Discovery Bay and not even then.

    have you bothered doing a search?
    have you provided any other relevant information for us?

    i'm guessing...ummmm.... no....

    until you do that, how can we answer any of your questions? as i said, your question comes up every week or so... do a search and you'll find answers to some of your questions... when you have more concrete questions, ask. we are usually a very helpful group of people.

    Mid Levels, Soho, Kennedy Town seem to be the area of choice amongst single expats.
