    Moving from US to Hong kong with 2 small children...

    We will be moving to Hong Kong in a couple of months and would really appreciate some recommendations on great service apartments in the city to live with young children (2 months and 2.5yrs). I would prefer somewhere with lots of other children, playground equipment, and children activities. I know, a lot of people on this forum have recommending living in Discovery Bay (which would be fine), but our first choice would be in the city. Preferably, central or Wai Chi or any areas close to those! We have previously lived in Shanghai so we are accustomed to living right in the city, so that's why at the moment I am preferring the city (I could change my mind later). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Kind regards,

    Cheriee

    You could try Mid-levels, it's close to central and there's plenty of good international schools in that area.

    Is that relevant for kids who are two months and 2.5 years old?

    To the OP - the real question is what is your budget? If it's unlimited then somewhere either on The Peak or Southside would be best (house, garden, etc).

    You might want to also post on Geobaby, as you will get a different slant on all of your answers.

    Most serviced apartments in HK are quite small (less that 500 square feet) and do not have facilities or cater to children. On HK island, Parkview (15-20 minutes to Central, 10 minutes to Wan Chai) has larger serviced apartments that lots of families stay at. It has good facilities for kids, indoor and outdoor play areas, planned activities and playgroups, indoor and outdoor pools, preschool, etc. Repulse Bay has similar serviced apartments and facilities, but there are fewer and they often book up months in advance.
