Hong Kong is considered one of the most expensive cities in the world, which affects the cost of real estate. About half a million residents of this metropolis manage to live in apartments with an area of 2-3 square meters: we watch the video how a bedroom, kitchen and hall fit into such a space – at At first glance, a closet is no bigger than a standard bathroom.
The cost per square meter in an old house in Hong Kong starts at $25,000. The primary housing stock is about one and a half times more expensive. Apartment in the center – from 180 thousand dollars per square. In 2022, the metropolitan area’s population exceeded 7.65 million. Housing is sorely lacking, which means prices are only going up.
In such a situation, real estate owners who have long learned how to turn a 40-meter apartment into a dozen small rooms benefit. Tenants must equip living themselves. Apartments with high ceilings are considered the best even with such footage, because you can make a “second level” and put a bed there.
You can forget about hygiene in these conditions; a bathroom is often mounted directly in the kitchen. Despite all the housing difficulties, Hong Kong remains the center of attraction for thousands of people. Each of them hopes sooner or later to change their life for the better.
