Expat life confronts you with the task of finding a place to call home time and time again. No matter if you have just arrived in Hong Kong, are looking for a new place in the city, or decided to stay for good, you need a good understanding of the market for housing and accommodation in Hong Kong.
Of course, you also need to get acquainted with the city itself before settling for a place to stay. Choosing what part of town is the right one for you depends on a multitude of diverse factors – availability of everyday amenities, closeness to your place of work, or, if you have children, having schools nearby are often deciding factors. You should also not forget that some parts of Hong Kong are among the most densely populated residential areas in the world; not everyone is comfortable with this.
