How many people are there in your family? The cost of living for a single person in HK is approx. $82,000 per year. Since you are moving in with family, you should know that the estimated cost of living for a family of four in Hong Kong is above $24,000 per month.
Another important question is what is your housing budget? Since I don’t know, I am putting up generalised data here of whatever I know about living in HK.
