Moving to Hong Kong may seem like a huge change of lifestyle, and whilst there are many differences, there are also a number of similarities that will help expats settle in and feel at home. The main language in Hong Kong is Cantonese, but English is very commonly used, especially in business. This former British colony is a major financial centre, an important trade hub and has also become a centre of modern architecture. The education system is similar to Britain's and the healthcare system consists of a mixture of both private and public hospitals. Hong Kong refers to itself as an entertainment hub and is home to the martial arts film genre, which helped gain fame to several notable actors including Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan and Jet Li. The British influence in Hong Kong is especially apparent in the city's love for sport, which includes football, rugby, basketball and cricket, and can be viewed in the many sporting venues throughout the city. It's easy to see why this stimulating city is so frequently described as a place where ìEast meets Westî. Finding affordable accommodation in Hong Kong may be a challenge, but getting your items there is very easy.

The contents of a 3-bedroom house and a family vehicle would also be suited to a 40-foot container.
