HK Magazine - - NEWS -

The lat­est Ex­pat In­sider sur­vey has ranked Hong Kong the 44th top des­ti­na­tion for ex­pats— a fall of 18 places from last year. Tai­wan topped the list. The sur­vey, pub­lished by ex­pa­tri­ate net­work­ing web­site In­terNa­tions, polled 14,300 ex­pats across 191 coun­tries. With the av­er­age ex­pat work­ing 48.5 hours a week, the city ranked 59th for work-life balance, but earned 24th place for job sat­is­fac­tion. 72 per­cent of ex­pats view the cost of liv­ing neg­a­tively, com­pared to 61 per­cent last year— Hong Kong was ranked sec­ond in the 2015 Cost of Liv­ing Rank­ings by hu­man re­sources firm Mer­cer. The city also fell from 37th last year to 48th in terms of “Ease of Set­tling In.” When the sur­vey was first con­ducted two years ago, Hong Kong was ranked 10th. Our take: If you’ve still got a hous­ing al­lowance, why are you com­plain­ing?
