I'm going to be teaching in a school in Tun Mun in September and the Gold Coast has been recommended to me as a good place to live. I have 2 young kids (3 months and 20 months) and from my initial research Gold Coast looks great.
However, perhaps someone with local knowledge could clarify a few things for me:
On the gohome.hk website 3 bedroom flats (700sq ft) are advertised at just $6500 a month with Century 21. Is this the real price? It seems very cheap!
My wife is originally from China, and likes to shop in local markets and buy fresh food everyday. Are there any fresh produce markets near Gold Coast, or is the Supermaket more than adequate? Also being a speaker of Mandarin Chinese - are ther many other Mandarin speakers in the development (I heard lots of Mainland Chinese rent at GC).
Are there any local Kindergarten's/doctors nearby? I ask this as we will not be able to afford international school fees or private medical fees if required for the children, and from research I have learned that medical care in HK is cheap and efficient (compared to the UK at least!).
Is the Gold Coast the best place for kids? Are there lots of other families?
Finally any other comments would be welcome. If anyone can recommend any other places for us to live near Tuen Mun (Yuen Long for example). Perhaps a flat in a village house style building within walking distance of amenities would be better?
So many questions..
Thanks for your help In advance!
