#worried on Dec 11, 2017 :
is $15k a month okay in tung chung? please help! and how much is the tax deduction of 15k a month?
#Leiloo on Nov 02, 2017 :
Hello, is a 1000 euro enough for 1 month of staying in HK? I'm student from Europe and I'm going for an exchange and my rent is covered and also 1 meal per day.
#Anonymous on Sep 22, 2017 :
HK$14k a month "survive" ok if you'll be like most of the people here living with their families, i.e. no rent. most of the time eat at home if not at local restaurant or fast food and go out once a week. I think the rent shown here is outdated as it hiked a bit past few years.
#William on Aug 12, 2017 :
Is a salary of 14000 HKD/ month ( around 1800USD) enough to survive in Kowloon?
#Alex on Aug 06, 2017 :
If the offer is around 35K per month, would that suffice?
#Mikey Johnson on Jul 31, 2017 :
1M HKD is ~130k USD and you are struggling???? Perhaps you are living beyond your means.
#Anonymous on Jul 13, 2017 :
@#Dinesh, with 350k HKD a month, you can't really live that well in HK even if you're single. I earn 1M HKD per month and i'm struggling to make payments on my house and cars. Maybe you need to negotiate for more money.
#Dinesh on Mar 24, 2017 :
I got an offer to work in Central, HK @ HKD350,000 per month. I was thinking if it is sufficient for me to live comfortably. I'm single.
#Anonymous on Sep 27, 2016 :
'Average' salary in HK is closer to 14-15k NOT ~21k.

The prices of beer in Markets is totally wrong, I can always buy six pack Korean beers for only HK$33!!
#David on Sep 01, 2014 :
Meal is way under priced here, 3 course dinner for two in mid-range rstrnt is min 500 hkd and can easily be 700. Dinner for 1 45 hkd is unrealistic unless you go to the cheapest places - which is not the same is inexpensive. Bread is very expensive, as is coffee. Same for imported organic food - 200 USD for 1 kg of beef and 60 usd for a small chicken is a bit over priced I think... for property, would be much easier to simply state - most expensive in the world.
#Anonymous on Jul 06, 2014 :
One bedroom apartment on Hong Kong island is easily 20-25,000 HKD/month
Three bedroom apartment on Hong Kong island is easily 35-40,000 HKD/month

Electricity + gas + water is respectively around 5000 HKD/2 months, 2500 HKD/2months + 2000 HKD/3 months = ~4500 HKD/month for a 1100 m2 apartment in Tung Chung.
#Mladen on Apr 14, 2014 :
City center is not defined there but I'd say Kowloon, the most densely populated place in the earth AFAIK sounds like a city center for Hong Kong...and indeed looks that way at the map!
#pbxpbx on Apr 11, 2014 :
For housing purposes what is meant by City Center? Is it HK Island or does it include Kowloon too?
And what is Outside City Center?
#Anonymous on Feb 15, 2014 :
Please quote all prices in US$.....that way it is understood by non-locals
