Hong Kong is not just an urban jungle as it is portrayed in most images. It is a fascinatingly diverse place to live. Before making a decision to live and work here, some research will tell you that the highest cost of living is rent. However, this living expense is offset, to a large extent, by the very low tax rates.
The weather is another variable that you need to take into account. Humidity and higher temperatures can make the HK Summer difficult for cold-weather lovers. Yet, air-conditioning is ubiquitous and you soon learn the routes around town to make the most of it. From October/November the climate becomes more like an English Summer (with far less rain), and Christmas day can often be spent on the beach.
The pace of life here is fast, but it’s fun. Read the staff testimonials. Talk to current tutors. HK is special.
