Big Apartments for Small Prices in Hong Kong – Impossible or not?

Hong Kong Jul 16, 2021

When it comes to renting apartments in Hong Kong, space is an important factor to consider. We've rounded up a list of spacious apartments in Hong Kong for not so big prices.

Admittedly, Hong Kong is not the cheapest city to live in, whether you are a local or an expatriate. At first glance, it seems that all big apartments are luxury apartments that are out of reach and that every “typical” single apartment in Hong Kong is a shoe box. This is of course not true, as there are loads of people living in decently sized apartments in Hong Kong.

Likewise, it doesn't mean that you necessarily have to live in a cramped space in order to be thrifty. Truth is, there are spacious apartments for rent in Hong Kong with a living and dining area at relatively cheap prices.

The question is how you can find these apartments at “smaller prices”. Also, “smaller prices” can be viewed in relative terms. For example, if you want space and all the convenience of a prime location, your apartment will not be the cheapest but it will definitely be the one that’s most value for money.

Naturally, there is always a trade off for everything, and if you decide to pay a bit more for more personal space and convenience, your slightly higher rent would be a small price to pay (pun intended).

So we compiled a list of best apartments for rent in Hong Kong that's big in size, but small in price!
