Welcome to Hong Kong!

No idea on Prince Edward area. Sorry.

Like I said in my old post, avoid Sham Shui Po and Mong Kok when renting. Sham Shui Po is the poor district and where many low-income group are residing. Mong Kok on the other hand is very densely populated and there's people everywhere.

If you are afraid of crematoriums, coffins, urns and funeral wreaths, then avoid the area near Hung Hom MTR.

www.centamap.com <-- this is a useful location finder

Thanks...i visited the prince edward...walk up building. too small. too bad it's 5k only.
buildings are too old. had a schedule in kennedy town...place looks nice and fully furnish. if i end up none, then i guess service apartment would do. less hassle. it has same price with kennedy town anyways.

May I ask how much is the rent in Kennedy Town and around how many square feet?

Rent is expensive these days. Even a small subdivided apartment room in the New Territories will cost 3K above.

Have you checked North Point, Fortress Hill or Quarry Bay areas? It has tram, bus and MTR network and I think price should be less expensive than areas around the Central district.

Sir JBY_HkgPny,

Sorry, been busy.
Rent is about 8k+ above. about 300+ sq feet
Didn't check those areas.
Anyway, i found an apartment already...200+ sq ft i believe which is somewhere ins sheung wan. fully furnish. Already on contract negotiations with agent. Price is reasonable since its just walking distance to my office.

Sir pinoyhk,

yeah, my headhunter gave me that. Found one in hung hom which is direct landlord. Very nice flat but price is almost same as the one i found here in sheung wan so i didn't pursue it.

if direct owner no commision which is good.

Is that you really need the flat to be in Hong Kong Island??  As far as I know, Hong Kong Island properties are one of most expensive in Hong Kong (especially Central, Mid-Levels, Causeway Bay, Wanchai apartments for rent and Happy Valley). Personally, I would prefer somewhere in Kowloon or in the New Territories as long as they have good transportation network. And you don't really need to wait 2 months to look for a flat. I think 1 month is enough to scout apartments in Hong Kong island, Kowloon and New Territories (you can look around through property agents after work or during weekends).

About internet connection, there are many to subscribe. The most popular ones are PCCW (most expensive, most efficient), I-Cable (very cheap, but some customers complain of unstable connection), Hong Kong Broadband (affordable).

By the way, may I know which industry/type of job are you into HKG?

Why don't try local property agencies?
