With a population of 7.5 million people living together in densely populated areas, there are of course a large number of Hong Kong apartments for rent. With a transient population and high rental prices, Hong Kong has one of the most active property rental markets in the world. From the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong Island to the laid back life of the outlying islands such as Lama or Cheng Chau, there is plenty of accommodation to choose from. If you are prepared to venture over to the so called “Dark Side” of Kowloon you can certainly find some better deals and a bit more room to breathe than you would find island side. And if your work is located in the city then it’s just a short ferry ride away with Hong Kong’s world famous picturesque skyline to greet you each morning.
Likewise if you are not averse to a longer commute then there are even more spacious Hong Kong apartments for rent at much more reasonable prices in areas such as the New Territories and Lantau than you would find in Central. These locations are ideal for those who have lived in Hong Kong for a while but have now settled down and want some room to grow with their young family. Areas such as Lantau give the added advantage of beautiful coastline and green rolling hills and mountains. Not to mention the occasional water-buffalo!
For some people however there really is no substitute for living in Central, with the viewpoint that if you are going to live in one of the most exciting vibrant cities in the world then you may as well do it right and be in the thick of it. There are many great areas to choose from in Central and with the ever advancing MTR lsland line looping its way around the coast, many more possibilities are opening up. If you are young and fresh to HK you may want to live more Centrally in order to experience the vibrant nightlife. Sheung Wan, Central and Wanchai are all great choices for young hedonists and professionals who don’t like long commutes alike.
If you want to stay near to Central but need a bit of breathing space then you could consider the West side. Starting with Kennedy Town, the foodie destination of choice, there are many great apartments for rent including buildings such as the Merton and Manhattan Heights with views straight out over the Hong Kong shipping channel. Go further still around the west side of the island and you will find many jewels dotted through the hillsides with fantastic views over the islands and across to Discovery Bay.
