Any one stayed/worked in HK before?

Postby munckyfun » Thu, 02 Apr 2009 6:12 pm

I will be moving over from Singapore to HK in Jul. Trying to do some research before this blind move. however, they don't seem to have a very organized expat website like what we have for Singapore here. Information scatters and comes in pieces. Any one who can share some good website where I can go and check their property rental, lifestyle, shopping, HK island ABC..etc?
Any suggestions/advices on what is the ideal area to stay, do and don'ts..etc are welcomed..

Hi

I lived in HK before coming here and loved it. Can I ask, do you have children and if so how old are they? Are you going to be driving? Most people don't as the transport system is so good.

A good website for housing was www.gohome.com.hk.

I lived in Discovery Bay, which is a great place for people with kids. www.discoverybayforum.com

www.hkexpats.com was a popular website.

Good luck!

www.gohome.com.hk.
is a good website, of course, you can check the property website for hk like 中原 OR 美聯, i flight constantly between two countries, yet i really don't like the humid climate in hk sometimes lar, yet don;t worry, the rental price comes lower these months

A good expat site in HK is http://www.geoexpat.com. I would have to say it's very well organised.
