Say hello to convenience, comfort and no more chores

Looking for somewhere new to live has to be one of life’s least fun tasks—but the solution might be a lot simpler than you think. In Hong Kong, there are plenty of luxury serviced apartments to choose from, and two of the best could just be steps from your office.

If you're a fan of hassle-free living, here are five reasons why Pacific Place Apartments and Taikoo Place Apartments may suit you:

Location, location, location

To maximise your living experience in Hong Kong, it's imperative to find a location that suits your busy schedule and balances your office and home life.

With Pacific Place Apartments, you're connected to a premium shopping mall and all of the city's major hotspots via multiple modes of transportation, while Taikoo Place Apartments are steps away from the office complex of Quarry Bay, as well as another major shopping mall.

Both offer short-term and long-term contracts, so whether you’re looking for an easy short-term commitment or are in it for the long haul, serviced apartments deliver everything you need.

Furnished flair

Usually, the act of finding a place to live is only half the battle—it’s then a case of turning that space into somewhere you actually want to live, via traipsing all over town to buy more furniture, fittings and appliances than you ever realised existed (not to mention the various headaches of getting everything delivered on time).
