Where is it?
Pokfulam is on the western tip of Hong Kong Island and boasts a wide variety of accommodation, ranging from prestigious townhouses and older-style apartments to modern high-rise estates. Views overlook the Lamma Channel or the Pokfulam Country Park. Rents are competitive, yet sizes are large compared to options in Mid-Levels.
Why live here?
Most residents are attracted to this area for the older–style, more spacious accommodation and reasonable value. Being an older part of Hong Kong, and with a large cemetery, real estate in this area has a more reasonable value. Residence Bel Air, a large residential development connected to Cyberport, offers luxurious homes with unobstructed sea views and extensive clubhouse facilities. This has become the most popular development in the area. The shopping complex at Cyberport includes a hotel, restaurants, shops, a supermarket and a cinema. There is also a large sea-front garden which is very popular with the residents. This area is also well served with International schools, including West Island School, Kennedy School, German Swiss International School, Kellett Primary School and the Independent Schools foundation. The Hong Kong University campus, student and staff lodgings are located throughout Pokfulam. The largest government hospital, Queen Mary, is also here.
