Below we provide a brief outline of residential areas. For a more comprehensive and detailed view, see

The Peak
Is Hong Kong’s premium address and well served by public transport, shopping arcades, supermarkets and banks. Fantastic views can be enjoyed, but the area is usually covered in fog during spring.

Heavily populated area of Hong Kong, traffic problems are a major concern through here. The easiest commute around Mid-Levels is via the famous 800mtr long escalator into Central.

Jardine’s Lookout
Many two and three-storey apartment blocks, garden apartments and private homes are located here just behind Happy Valley.

Happy Valley, Causeway Bay & Wanchai
Nightlife, Happy Valley Race Course and smaller sized apartments are the norm through these areas. Plenty of sports areas as well for residents.

Taikoo Shing & Kornhill
Well serviced by the MTR, various restaurants and a pleasant escape from the intensity of Central make North Point and Quarry Bay very good alternatives.

South Side

Shouson Hill
Located close to Ocean Park, this is an area of luxury low-rise developments. Shopping is easy with both Repulse Bay and Aberdeen close-by.

Deep Water Bay
Private homes, top quality townhouses and a private nine-hole golf course next to the beach make this a place that costs big dollars.

Repulse Bay
By far the most popular area on the Southside of the Island, loads of public transport, a famous beach, as well as, good restaurants and new amenities, it is easy to see why it is so popular. High-rises are big in number but you can find townhouses and low-rises as well.

South Bay
Larger units and townhouses located near a couple of very good beaches, it is a sparsely populated area.

Chung Hom Kok
Buses to Central and North Point make this an easy area to access. Along with larger houses and buildings with swimming pools and gardens, has made the area quite attractive to many expats.

Has become famous for its markets with bargains to be had everywhere. Some good pubs and restaurants can be found as well. Quite a change, for the once small fishing village.


Some parts offer older and larger living environments and are cost effective. Further around towards Cyberport, a high-tech business park, newer apartments can be found, but the price also rises as well.
