THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE MOVING INTO SHA TIN
Illegally parked or damaged share bikes are often found around housing estate entrances and along the streets of Sha Tin. Public parking spaces are sometimes overtaken by share bikes too. These bikes can cause street blockages and blemish the otherwise beautiful city.
Sha Tin has a staggering number of 23 public housing estates, and many of them have long suffered rodent infestations. Places close to restaurants are particularly vulnerable to this problem; there are even reports of mice entering private homes.
