Properties in  Southern Hong KongThe Southern District (a prime area) is one of the few places in Hong Kong where the pedestrian is not king. More than three quarters of the land is park area and the few inhabited zones are generally quaint and quiet neighbourhoods or luxury private housing estates. Mountains and rocky hills dominate the landscape. With the exception of a few areas and the old houseboat junks in Aberdeen Harbour, the district is high-end. Many international residents choose to live here with their families. With the sub-tropical weather, the beaches and Ocean Park, this can seem more like a vacation locale than part of a busy metropolis.

Shopping is limited to Repulse Bay and Stanley Market. Stanley attracts even non-residents with its covered clothes and accessories market and a restaurant row with leisurely al fresco dining. Shek-O and Repulse Bay beaches are well-equipped and accessible even by public transportation. Shek-O opens out into the South China Sea. The Shek-O Country Park has trails with picture-perfect vantage points, so rural and peaceful that it’s hard to believe that it’s so close to the financial district and the busy streets of Central.
