What are people experiences with digital nomad life in HK? Would you recommend? I'm thinking to go somewhere in Asia for few months early next year and thinking if HK can be a good option.

Waaaaaay too expensive, unless you donโ€™t mind. Iโ€™d go back to visit for a couple of weeks, but never live there as a digital nomad.
Rent is very expensive, but food can be very cheap if you eat super locally (no western food)
knocte 3mo
not worth it
Is there any dn community? Or any coliving type of housing? I understand it's not the cheapest location but suppose it's no different from locations like SG or Tokyo
mikedev10 3mo
dunno myself, only been here 24h and am leaving saturday.
pratik 3mo
yeah I spent 5 weeks there last year. Would not recommend slowmadin here. A couple of weeks of visit is cool but to dn its too expensive and way to crowded
etc 2mo
Iโ€™m from HK and go back extensively - thereโ€™s no point to being in HK long term. The value proposition just isnโ€™t there.

Not around anymore, enjoy your time HK!

Anyone going to Canton Fair?

Hi there!!! Wanted to ask if it's safe to solo travel to Hong Kong as a girl? Any other girls here had done it? Would appreciate some tips or any things to consider. Thank you so much! ๐Ÿ˜„
swong 1mo
Personally I think HK is very safe for all. On the odd occasion you will hear a bad experience (female especially) but should be fairly easy to meet others here
I think definitely worth a visit
benguild 1mo
yes ofc
guido 1mo
Very safe.
lporat 1mo
Very safe for women
analed 1mo
Okay, thank you very much!
knocte 1mo
possibly the safest place in Asia
I lived there for 3 years from 2018. The girl I was dating there (she was from the UK so also a foreigner) found it incredibly safe. There is a large clubbing area called LKF where there may be more people chatting people up, but even there it is ok. We both found walking around the city at night at any hour very safe.
Hi everyone! Typical case, but is hard to find some guidence, in case some one went through it and got better idea what to do.

I got a Business Visa in my own country (Spain) for 30 entries 2 times to China.
After the 2nd entry I went Hong Kong to request a new visa, despite presenting the same documents (with dates updates) this time I was refused and recommended not to re-apply in Hong Kong at least for 3 month.

Im unclear of
โ€ข Can I apply for visa before 3 months in another country? (Whatever us business or just travelling)
โ€ข Did any got help of an agent to solve this situation, or appeal? How it was the experience?
โ€ข Could it be the reason that Im not Hong Kong resident? Did it happen to other people?

Appreciate the feedback โ˜บ๏ธ
analed 1mo
Thank you so much! ๐Ÿ˜„
knocte 1mo
it could be that you're not HK resident, indeed; last time I went to an agency that helped me apply to get a visa for mainland, they asked me if I had a normal HKID or permanent HKID, because depending on the answer they would allow me to choose multi-entry or whatnot
knocte 1mo
(PS I'm from Spain too)

It's funny how people with strong passports are unaware of how paper visas work ๐Ÿ˜„ The general rule is that you can only apply for a visa in the country of your residence. If it's not an e-visa, very few countries would agree to issue it to you outside of that country unless you have a very good reason for it. China does not seem to be an exception.
True. Although you can sometimes be very lucky. On occasions some embassies say itโ€™s ok and will let you do it. Unlikely China will though.

Furthermore, the stronger your passport, the more likely they would let you apply in an out-of-residence country.
analed 1mo
You need visa if you plan to stay more than 14 days right? In Hong Kong. By the way some friends told me there's not much to do, I wanted to stay the 14 days and they told me 4 to 5 days is more than enough.. What do you think? ๐Ÿ˜„
analed 1mo
So I thought I could do a week there, and another week in Singapore or something
Depends on your passport. I get 6 months without visa.

And I could probably spend the rest of my life there without getting bored tbh. But depends what youโ€™re into and where else you want to go.
swong 1mo
I think thereโ€™s less to do in Singapore than in hk ๐Ÿ˜… really depends on what youโ€™re looking to do
knocte 1mo
strong passports (e.g. US/Canada/EU/etc) get 3 months without the need for a visa
U07G2NYE7br />
I wrote the Chinese Consulate in Hong Kong and they also said it could be the reason

I find strange as we are allowed to apply (even I got the paper at the entre) if that was the reason the could had told me even before submitting the passport.

But I guess that you are allowed but then they will decide them selfs.
Thanks for the reply ๐Ÿ™‚
By the way, when you apply with the agent it worked?

I failed to get a recommendation for a trustable agent ๐Ÿ™‚
knocte 30d
yes it worked; but I'm permanent resident of HK myself

14 days a lot for a place like Hong Kong, especially if youโ€™ve never been before, so thereโ€™s a chance you might get tired of it early. Accommodation is also $$$.

So two weeks is too much, okay. Will do a week then. Thank you so much! ๐Ÿ˜Š
chethanuk 25d
Yeah two weeks is too much and there is a housing problem, you will be better off going to other countries like Vietnam, Malaysia or Philippines

Hey yโ€™all Iโ€™m running a coliving project in HK, we have 4 rooms atm. If youโ€™re interested to stay and mingle with other creatives, nomads and entrepreneurs feel free to DM for more info! We are just starting off so our rates are slightly lower than what youโ€™ll find in the market.
