Livability. whether it is livable has numerous objective criteria; hours of sunlight per year, numbers of chain stores, politics, city development, max hours of working etc. …. but the word can only be represented when personal charming factor adds into judging.
Hong Kong has efficient transportation. From cityscape to scenery a 15 mins ride is possible; Hong Kong has a variety of food to choose, priced from $50 to $5000; Hong Kong is a place that possess night life, it just never stops in holidays that makes 24 hours a bit too short.
Yet when work has occupied a person for over 60 hours a week, it just doesn’t let people to rest and enjoy those benefits of Hong Kong, the place is not charming at all.
