#Lorenc on Dec 23, 2015 :
a good idea would be to live there part of each year or at least a few months
or so each year but with a few friends. and also can share the cost of rent
and utilities. bingo!
#Lorenc on Dec 23, 2015 :
amazing! Macao is the Las Vegas of China, yet it has it's own money
and passport, Portuguese influence from history,
much more manageable than living in Hong Kong,
and the cost of living a lot lower than Hong Kong,
even lower than most major U.S.A./Canadian cities.
i don't see why more foreigners don't try Macao
instead of Hong Kong if you like living around that region,
full time or even part time living there should be great.
