I am planning to move to Hong Kong this June and looking for places to live. Here is my situation: a 2-year son, want some facilities like playground, swiming pool, park and etc.; My parents may visit from time to time, so have to be a place around 1000 sq foot; work in TST, prefer MTR commute to bus, commute time within 30 minutes including walking from home to MTR / from MTR to office; budget 25K
I did some research and Kowloon seems the place to live as NT is too far and HK is too expensive. Among the area in Kowloon, Tai Kok Tsui seems good. But in TKT the ask price for a 1000SF apartment seems beyond my 25K budget, which is more like 30K.
My questions are:
1. Besides TKT, any other place fits my situation? Tai Wai is recommended by a friend but I think it might be a stretch for 30 minute commute time.
2. For 30K ask price, is 25K doable?
Any suggestion / comment is welcome.
