In a city that boasts some of the highest property prices in the world, the use of the term ‘budget’ is almost laughable. However, armed with dedication to the cause, it is possible to track down rental properties that offer some sort of value for money – in Hong Kong terms of course. To prove our point, we present to you our five favourite properties that fall under $30,000 per month. Happy bargain hunting Hong Kong!

32 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central
- $26,000 per month
- 346 sqft – 500 sqft
- 1 bedroom, modern open plan kitchen, modern bathroom, prime location, tailor made furniture
From the outlying islands to the thick of the action, this studio apartment on Lyndhurst Terrace may offer less in terms of space, however, when it comes to convenience, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better alternative. We love the sleek black kitchen, the marble design of the bathroom, and the suave grey colour scheme which runs throughout. The catch? It’s a fourth floor walk up – but before you keep scrolling, just think of how toned your legs will be.

- 1,400 sqft
- Detached property, 2 storeys, 2 bedrooms, large terrace, open kitchen, green and ocean views, close to transport, many beaches and hiking trails in the area
Surrounded by lush greenery and the glistening ocean, Sai Kung is a real paradise outside the metropolis. It’s dreamy on the pocket too, with this quaint, two-storey village house on the market for just $23,000 per month. The cosy living area and open-plan kitchen are perfect for quiet nights in, the spacious terrace and nearby beaches are ideal for lazy weekends in the sun, and Sai Kung Town is just a short walk away when you fancy a spot of socialising.
