once you have lived in the downtown area or TKO or Olympic, you will think mid level is very remoted and populated. Sure if you are gwai lo enough, and think LKF is the only place to hang out, then that's fine.

Kowloon side is better, the habour view is much nicer, I think.

I would say only a handful of places can get a "harbour view" and if you get one, you're paying high prices lol.

I live in Wanchai right now at Star Street precinct. It's really quiet and pretty convenient at the same time. I'd stick to Hong Kong Island if you can, it's much more convenient in comparison to Kowloon side or New Territories side.

Sorry to be a noob, but what's considered HK Island? I always read about it, but am not sure which region it is.

I mainly stay in TKO (Hang Hau) or Mong Kok (Ladies St).

Am in HK for a week long conference

Visited a balling friend and his pad is $3M CDN for 1400 sq ft. Upper levels, rents out for about $8K CDN a month.

Top that with 15% max bracket tax and finance professionals doing well over $150K/CDN a year + expat benefits, it's no wonder the segregation is growing between the haves and have-nots so fast!

I guess Vancouver's not that bad after all with our $1k/sq ft condos

Manager $30k+ to $40k+

My brother lives in The Pacifica, I think it's a pretty good area to live now. They finally have a tunnel going straight into the MTR, so you wouldn't have to walk past the industrial area anymore and avoid the heat/rain.

JUSCO just opened up across the street, +1 for convenience, -1 for added human traffic. Also quite a few restaurants to choose from in the mall, and there are shops for pretty much all your necessities.

If you drive or plan on driving, it's actually pretty convenient starting point as there's roads heading in every direction.

But it's a bit crowded and a lot of younger families live there, so there are a lot of kids.

Thanks, ya was looking at the 3 residential buildings there. There is a Jusco inside the mall, not sure if that's the one you are talking about. The mall itself is a bit dead. Just education centers, a Park N Shop, Watsons etc. Nothing for shopping and nothing special.

I don't mind the kids, actually, I prefer that.

Thanks for your thoughts. Do you mind me asking when he bought?

That's not outrageous as it's less than $20k/sq ft.

It sure puts perspective as to how expensive Hong Kong is when we ourselves already complain of how Vancouver is expensive.

Not the $10 Jusco, but the huge supermarket/department store, like the one in Kornhill and Hung Hom. It's across the street where there used to be a used car mall, on the ground floor of the Aqua Marine Towers.

Yea, the mall's not really good for shopping, but just for daily necessities. But there's actually a decent choice of restaurants.

I don't remember exactly when he bought it, I think 3 or 4 years ago.

Skinny should just make a HK subforum on revscene.

Revscene is still my most frequented forum even after moving away from Vancouver for so so long.

Living by myself in TST right now and work in Central.

Other than the rush hour crowd during the morning for MTR i got no complaints. TST is quite convenient for most occasions. After work I usually take the ferry back, save some money and enjoy the view.

Do expats typically go to HK by choice or forcibly sent there by their employers?
