    Area search help...

    Hi everyone
    Just moved to HK a few weeks ago with a nearly 4month old little boy and hubby. I know there are a lot of threads already about where to live but, with the following criteria, can anyone narrow down some areas for me as it's hard for me to look at a million different areas with bub...
    Looking for * rent to about $25,000/m with 3 bedrooms if possible * no longer than 30-40mins by fairly direct route to TST for hubby's work * expat area with families * close to park and play areas * close to supermarket/shops * no too remote (eg not DBay or Gold Coast).

    Hung Hom seems popular according to other threads as does Kowloon station and even a few places on HK Island (some of you have said mid-levels west?). Suggestions would be good but would love to narrow it down to about 4 areas if possible.

    Any suggestions welcomed, once settled would love to meet up with other mums.

    Cheers

    Try Ocean Shores or Metro Town (Le Grande) at Tiu Keng Leng. Nice big apartments, loads of outside and inside spaces, nice clean air, shops are OK, but you're close to the good ones like Taste as well. 30 minutes to TST and start of the line so you get a seat!

    Yep, it's Kowloon side, right at the end of Kowloon start of New Territories. It seems a way out but it's not really that far!
