    for food, here is where i go all the time

    yung kee - great goose!
    renaissance harbour view hotel - great formal restaurant, as well as great buffet as well (best in HK IMO!)
    grand hyatt - teppen buffet is great for lunch, plus top floor has a nice formal restaurant as well
    luk yu - great traditional chinese food, try it once at least - i don't care fot it, but lots of ppl like it and they're famous for fine tea
    dynasty club - nice lunch sets and western food + traditional chinese (may have to be a member though)
    farmhouse - great goose + friend chicken

    other recommended:
    fook lam moon
    carriana for chiu chow style food (crab is super sweet, but pricey)
    and check out sai kung for the freshest and most exotic seafood in Hong Kong!
    lot's more that i cannot think of right now, but also street food is good when walking around and can be found everywhere for almost nothing!


    my favourite thing about hong kong and other SE asian countries is those packets of crispy seaweed found at all the convenient stores , believe its called to noe kae or something lol - addicting

    Staying in Hong Kong for short term, I suggest those hotel service apartment because they will provide better service such as laundry, gym....etc. I have worked there for two months last year and had pretty good experience. My company provided me with an service apartment there. It was pretty good and was located in Kowloon district. Also it was convenient to commute to Hong Kong Island. Mobile phone service was relatively cheap and convenient in Hong Kong, but for less hassle you should get one of those pay as you go service at the airport. Food is always great in Hong Kong but I didn't dig into those high end restaurants. I rather explored all those local restaurants and tried every different kind of food.

    I think so. 1000euro cannot rent a flat in "star street" which ink Pita suggested. I rent a small flat to stored my garments and stuffs out of the Cooool area, it cost me almost 700 euro. A short term rental (3 months) will cost high price to pay. You may take a look of : http://www.horizonhotels.com.hk/index_en.html, I lived for a year before I move to here. It was a very nice service apartment, with finess club to keep firm yr body, swimming pool, shuttle bus (10 mins) to the MTR station, wifi; internet and well management, 80% residence are foreigners. No deposit hv to pay. And maybe you can hv a very nice view of 180 degree HK night harbour view and the hot ladies in Bikini

    i go to Hong Kong twice a year since family owns a few homes and flat in hong kong, but i do not know much about renting. one time due to family problems, i stayed at an apartment (i believe they are the convention apartments) near the grand hyatt and next door to the dynasty club. that's a fantastic place and they have a great gym as well, but i'm guessing it could be pricey, the area is wanchai. where is the german consulate located? i could do some research for u. basically, HK is fucking expensive in regards to housing, and it's difficult to find a nice place for 1000 euros IMO -- one of the reasons stopping me from moving to the great city (since i would not live with family lol) feel free to pm me with questions - i'm probably not the best here, but i will try my best to help.

    Cheers mate, how far do I get with 1000euros for an apartment? And how do I find apartments, through the Internet?

    Mobile pay as you go sounds good...should I get a card at the airport or is it cheaper to get in a shop int he city?

    Moving to HongKong

    Since I am moving to hong kong for three months in April, I would like to ask our local members there for some advice...

    1. Where should I live and how do I manage to get a apartment? Internet, contacts, whatever is the best? Any warnings about rip offs? I am working at the German consulate, so if possible a cool area near there would be good. Although I don't care, I wanna live in the hotspot, not too student like but also not too posh...Just the coolest spot in town with the nicest cafes and people...

    2. What should I definitely check out! Restaurants, bars, clubs, ok shops seems easy...

    3. How is the mobile phone thingy working in honking, do I have to do a contract?

    Any further tips would be very helpful!
