I am renting out my 1-bedroom apartment while I am out of town. Tai Hang is a cute little up-and-coming neighbourhood, very close to busy Causeway Bay, and yet still very peaceful. There are plenty of hip and chic restaurants, cafes and bars in the area. If you want to know what it’s like to live in Hong Kong like a local or an expat, come stay in my apartment! The building is a traditional-style walk-up (no elevator) and my apartment is on the third floor. It is a 7-min walk to the MTR.

The space
The apartment has one bedroom with a double bed, as well as a sofa bed in the living room. Both can accommodate 2 people each (4 people total). Please note that the bed in the bedroom is a bit short due to a shelving unit at the foot and would be most comfortable for people 176cm/5'9" or shorter. If you are taller, please let me know so I can prepare the sofa bed for you.

There is a small, fully-equipped kitchen with a fridge/freezer, microwave, and 3 hobs for cooking: 2 gas and 1 portable electric. There is a kettle and a blender. There is also a washing machine that you are welcome to use for your laundry. A table separates the kitchen and the living room and can function as a dining table, work desk or vanity.

There is a dog that normally lives here, and while the apartment has been thoroughly cleaned, please do take note if you have severe allergies. I do not have WiFi in the apartment, but you can easily get a tourist sim card at the airport or 7-Eleven/Circle K for a reasonable price. You can also consider renting a portable WiFi device, otherwise there are plenty of free WiFi networks around the city.

Where you’ll be

Hong Kong, Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong

Tai Hang is a quiet neighbourhood amongst the busy bustle of the rest of Hong Kong Island. But if bustling is what you’re after, Causeway Bay is only a 10-minute walk away. Tai Hang has a charming, small neighbourhood feel, and is reminiscent of a Hong Kong before all of the hyperdevelopment. Still, the neighbourhood is up-and-coming and there are lots of hip cafes, restaurants and bars to choose from. There’s also a supermarket and a 7-Eleven less than 30 seconds from the flat for any essentials you may need.

There are lots of great articles online about Tai Hang that I'm not allowed to link to here, but just do a Google search and you'll see why I think it is a great and underrated part of the city where you can get a real, local experience.
