      You're right about cost of living but I'd pick any of the major cities in the area over the soulless Henanese nest that is Shenzhen tbqh

      Is this still a good place to live and work in?

      For you, if you don't know and/or have to ask, the answer is probably 'No'

      One of the reasons I chose Hong Kong is because I want to try and make a shitload of money in as little time as possible without essing dees or slinging rock.

      Once I have my nest egg, I'm getting the frick out.

    Rent cost more than the average salary except if you accept tiny rooms or shared places.
    HK good? Only if you rich.
    For the average dude if you dont know Chinese then it's fun for a month but after that you will have seen and done everything.
    Cooming potential?
    Many many many many golddiggers there.

      Golddiggers and cooming are two totally different things, my friend.

    When was it ever a good place to live and work in? Maybe back before it was handed over to China?

    Was already dying with the riots ~2019 and COVID dealt the final death blow. Managed to be even more moronic and totalitarian than anywhere in Mainland. It may have bounced back marginally but there's too much uncertainty for its future to be worth moving there IMO

      Yeah, you would be crazy to move there now. I'm surprised more people are not leaving.

    Absolutely not, I enjoyed Hainan for a little bit, and while it does get pretty in the mountains, the rest of the city is an over industrialized hypercapitalistic nightmare that makes you feel like an insect.

    Unless your boss is footing the bill for living costs I'd just go to Guangzhou, Shenzhen or the other delta cities and go to Hong Kong for fun

      This is not true.

      >Before the Chinese implemented democracy!

      The expansion of the geographical constituencies and broad political participation by the Hong Kong public was a process that took place between the 1980s and 1997, and it was not one that was welcomed by Beijing.

      I don't know if you're trying to be misleading or if you're simply ignorant, but do consider informing yourself on the subject better before making comments like this. It's a little embarrassing.

      It's objective reality that the PRC has shat Hong Kong up and made it a much worse place to live. If the CIA are also saying this, then that's a stopped clock twice a day situation.

        How is it objectively worse and what exact policies led to it? Seems to me like da seaseapee just stamped out all the black markets that were flowing through from corruption.

        I sometimes wish I wasn't attracted to the loser sperg corner of the internet.

        I want to ask about networking opportunities for crypto ventures for someone with a very good grasp on crypto tech. It looks like CPC is turning HK into a special economic zone for the industry, kinda want to break in, but I don't have the faintest idea how. If there is a high level anon out there that knows the scene, pls advices me sir the needful.

        I know a lot of mainlanders going there for the crypto biz while "web3" is getting more acceptable in the mainland. If you know Chinese or Cantonese or you're a skilled dev then seems decent. Otherwise depends on your expertise and skills if any.

        Crypto is big business now. Lots of money floating around, total market cap is over 1T usd and the exchanges go through tens of billions in volume a day. Tech and general regulatory acceptance gets better by the day.

        I mean, chyna thinks it's important enough to strong arm HK banks into accepting exchanges like binance as clients while the western establishment is clumsily trying to get rid of them (HK banks dont want to do this because theyre afraid of catching heat from the same western establishment, but the mandarinate has spoken).

        It's literally the only industry that can bring in money in HK considering:

        - You can run cash grab NFT sales with zero repercussions even if you decide to rug morons and take the money for yourself

        - You can run a crypto project/presale and pull a soft rug like NEO/QTUM/Other chinese projects did with zero repercussions

        - You can run a text book VC scam crypto project and soft rug with zero repercussions

        - All of that while capital gains taxes are low

        - While every other industry in HK is tapped the frick out and saturated with expats/trust fund babies burning cash like furnaces

        So that explains why every tech guy/geek with a macbook pro in HK is going that route.

      More context, I had an aunt who lived in HK. She taught English, but I mean university courses on things like Shakespeare's writings, not ABCs to kindergartners. She lived there from the late-90s to 2010 and seemed really jaded about HK. I got to go there once and she showed me around which was cool AF l but I got the impression it sucks to live there. The worst part is you're constantly surrounded by Chinese "people," no joke. I'm not talking about mainlanders either, who are worse, but local people. They're still rude, pushy and unclassy most of the time. Chinese are ok in small numbers but HK is very dense and crowded. So unless you're really rich and live in some insanely expensive apartment in Central, you're stuck in a warren of ramshackle high-rise apartments full of people who smoke in the elevator, speak at a loud volume 100% of the time, cook stinky tofu for breakfast below your bedroom window and renovate their apartment at 4:00 AM.

      To deal with this, she moved to one of the small islands offshore in the bay where there was a village and things were relatively peaceful and there were individual houses but it was an hour long ride by ferry each way to go into the city and all the chinese people of course thought she was crazy for not wanting to be in the "hustle and bustle." The people there have a word "yit nao" which means "hot and noisy" and this is considered a positive attribute of a place, not a negative one. The Chinese are weird.

      It's not terribly expensive to do day to day stuff in HK (public transit takes you everywhere and dim sum is cheap) but enjoying your money is hard because it luxury things are very expensive as HK is full of rich Chinese who have a lot more money than you.

      I wouldn't do anything with marijuana, besides smoke it. It's still too politically sensitive. What if the US decides you're actually a drug trafficker for getting involved in weed internationally? Not worth it.

        Oh wow your aunt did the Lamma Island thing. That's the name of that foreigner oriented island IIRC. I lived in HK as a new grad 2016-17.

        I didn't stay too long and only made 35k HKD/month, while applying a lot of that to my USA student loans.
        I told myself I'd only return if making real good money. Ya...rich Chinese are just giga loaded.

        You're pretty much correct that you'll be surrounded by Chinese behavior while living there. I got lucky with my apartment selections at least, but the overall behavior did start to weigh on me after a year.

    I adored visiting when it was under colonial rule but I'm terrified to visit these days and see how badly the mainland screwed everything up.

      I wish I could have seen those days. I'd love to experience a Kai Tak landing. Given, when I went, the difference between HK and a main 1st tier Chinese city was still pretty pronounced, so it felt like a different place.

        Kai Tak at night is one travel experience that absolutely lived up to the hype. In its own way I would put it up there with David and The Last Supper tbh.

      If you can get a high paying job, don't mind the climate, certainly consider it.

      Best time to visit was before the handover.
      The second best time is now.
