    Pokfulam - recommend places to live?

    Hello,

    We're currently apartment hunting in Pokfulam and have reached an impasse with DH - I like (the idea of) low/mid rise living and am prepared to sacrifice some facilities, whereas he is all for the convenience of facilities - neither of us can speak from experience so wanted to get your views/votes.

    As far as highrise goes, found some good flats in Baguio Villas, the various Bel-Airs and Belchers.

    Do they all compare pretty equally in terms of facilities (playground, pool, gym), and convenience to transport (to Admiralty for DH), preschool and groceries?

    Also, any low/midrise-living people that can recommend their building, and which supermarket/bus into town do you use?

    We have a 3 year old son, and hopefully one more someday.

    Thanks!

    jg

    Bel-Air will have the most facilities (and the best) and the biggest bang for your buck. I have heard prices have drastically dropped there. As for schools, don't worry about that as most of the major pre-schools will have shuttles that pick up and then drop off all the kids in Bel-Air, Belchers etc....this is true for most large ex-paty high-rises. There is a Park N Shop in Cyberport.

    How about Scenic Villas, quite big, but only 15 floors high, lot of kids, good facilities (incl. Wellcome supermarket) and apartments are large.

    I suppose all depends on your budget --how much is it?

    Back to my original thread.....We can spend max 40K - if its true that people are getting 20-30% off advertised price - should I be looking in the $50-60K range?
