cost of living comparisom between HK n SG

Postby simpleJane » Tue, 06 Jun 2006 12:54 am

Am a PR in SG and I just came back from a HK trip.
I found that in terms of clothings n eateries,
HK has better value-for-money items n richer in culture as well.

Not sure about guys' likings like electronic gadgets etc. though.

I don't think think there's a significant price difference in either of those, and overall Singapore is usually quite a bit cheaper -- rents, in particular, are way cheaper than HK.

as an expat i must be missing te "culture" you talk about in HK...sure a wind up..only culture is karaoke and gambling..walk into a sport shop you will find only clothes n shoes no sports equipment...

just from this web sites property section...rents are half in Spore. Expat friendly city Spore 1 ...HK 32..in some recent poll

any real will be nice thks...
