Hong Kong Apartment Tour 24sqm for $7,000,000 hkd


Welcome to Hong Kong home to 7.3 million
people and where 1 million US dollars will only buy you a 20 square meter
apartment in today’s video I’m going to show you what a 1 million apartment in
Hong Kong looks like this is actually an Airbnb in Mong Kok that were staying at
we’re at the 15th floor the building is right next to an MTR are and 2 mins away
from Langham Place shopping mall I’m going to show you how the owner pack all
the necessities in this tiny apartment so this is the main door it’s a keypad access
door right to the left is the shoe area the owner even provided house slippers
because this is Asia after all so imagine if you live here and you have 20
pairs of shoes do you think it will fit in this space right here how about if
your partner also has 20 pairs of shoes just something to think about in tiny
apartment living moving on there’s bedroom number one
and bedroom number two and this slim door is the shower but we’ll come back
to that later this is the main living area slash kitchen and dining
there’s a flat-screen TV in the middle and some storage underneath it we’ve
packed our bags because this our last night in Hong Kong so this is the
cleanest this living space will look like this area right here is the kitchen
spice rack on the wall rice cooker on top of a miniature fridge and no freezer
there is a kettle a small sink and surprisingly a washing machine there’s a
roof access you can hang your clothes there to dry like I said this apartment
has all the necessities all the cooking utensils, bowls, and plates and if you’re
thinking where do I cook my food well we have a portable cooktop this is the
dining table / working area where you can work on your laptop if you want this
is actually a sofa bed there’s an ottoman on the left there’s a lamp in the corner
and a hanger which doesn’t belong there so I’ll put it back where it belongs
this Ottoman also has storage which stores the vacuum cleaner so that’s the entire 360 of the main
living area welcome to bedroom number one where
there’s a bunk bed top bunk is a single bed while the bottom bunk is a double
bed there’s also space for this wardrobe but that’s basically it this room only
has space for a bed and a wardrobe and the same with bedroom number two so this is bedroom number two this is
where I am currently sleeping so I’m sorry for the mess
like I said it only has space for a bed and a wardrobe there is a bedside lamp
AC unit all the rooms have an AC unit by the way including the living area and in
here there’s an ironing board and an iron somewhere the owner really thought
of everything all the essentials you need has been provided for in this tiny
apartment last but non the least is the shower
room we have a sink with storage underneath the toilet and the shower so
thankfully we have a hot water shower in this divider that will keep the rest of
the room dry while you shower I’ve been to other tiny apartments before in Hong
Kong and because there’s so little space it’s not unusual to see the shower over
the toilet and that’s another plus for this apartment so here’s a last look of the
apartment don’t mind Ray he’s just modeling his rash guard he said it’s his most
prized possession at the moment so yeah here’s another 360 and at this
point I’m only doing this for Ray now so that he can show off his rash guard so
thank you so much guys for watching the video please subscribe to the channel if
you haven’t already and turn on post notifications I hope you’re having a
great day so far and I’ll see you guys next time bye you can’t wait
on other people you can’t wait on their affirmation you can’t wait
on their approval you can’t wait on their support sometimes you’ve just got to
run and look behind you and say everybody who knows to run run but I can’t stop
running because you’re not running with me listen listen to me hear me you can’t stop chasing your dream

Hey guys. Where do I begin, first off, I’m so sorry. There’s wrong information on this video. This property is an Airbnb we stayed at when we were in Hong Kong so the price was an estimate. I based it on a Telegraph article, the Most Expensive Cities to Live in. Hong Kong is number 3 on the list and it still has one of the most expensive real estate in the world. In the article, it said 20sqm in Hong Kong is about 1 million US dollars. (I’m still trying to find this article so that I can link it) At that time, I wasn’t very careful with the details because I’m a very small Youtuber, and I consider 500 views to be a successful video. Obviously I wanted to put “$1,000,000 USD” for shock factor and I was happy with that one article. Seeing now that it has been viewed over 46k times, I did more research and I realized that 1M usd isn't accurate. I went on squarefoot.com.hk and searched properties on the same area, Kowloon, and the more accurate price is around $6M to $7M hkd which is $890,000 usd. It's still expensive but it's not $1M usd. I've changed both the title and the thumbnail to reflect what I've just said. That's it I guess, I'm sorry again for the inaccuracies and thanks for listening. 🙂

You would have been better off staying in a hotel.
The real estate prices in Hong Kong is totally out of touch with reality, a bubble waiting to burst.
There is no real shortage of land to build on, but the government is manipulating the availability of building space by auctioning them to the highest bidder. In the end, only the ones with connections get to profit from all this, at the expense of the suckers forking out the exorbitant prices.

I live in Hong Kong. If this flat is in Mong Kok, the price of this flat will be around US$840,000. Mong Kok is an area where everything is cheaper. If you think it's small, imaging a family of 4 (or 5) living in it – that's HK nowadays! Young people simply cannot afford to buy a flat without the help of their parents. Some comments below are accurate – money laundering from ….. The property market in Hong Kong is absolutely crazy!

The plan of the Chinese government is to colonize Hong Kong with rich Chinese newcomers, and drive the locals back to mainland China or force up-and-coming middle class to move to other countries. The Hong Kong government has USD $1000 billion cash in the bank and basically decided not to increase public housing or follow the Singapore model of differentiating the local and foreign speculation markets

I used to have a co-worker from Hong Kong who told me that she sold her condo prematurely for a small price and that had she waited a couple of years later, she would have made so much money she would not need to work (this was in the mid 1990s). She then went on to buy a house in San Francisco which she sold after only a year. Had she held on to it til now, her home would have been worth a million dollars. In real estate, timing is everything.

The way the video is presented almost resembles a dollhouse. The kitchen table looked better washed out like a matching set of wooden table and chairs as shown as the main photo. I agree with others that I would become even more depressed and claustrophobic living in this tiny apartment. If it was more artistically decorated and architecturally interesting like some of the newer tiny homes, it would improve the perception.

One of the lousiest place on earth. With the price of a mansion gets you a piece of coffin-size place in the slum.
And >140,000 HK people have to pay >350 USD per month to live in dog cages.
That's why they have to fight for living in the storage room in public toilets coz it's FREE & much bigger!
These Chinese know nothing but churning properties. That's why 5 businessmen in HK control >60% of total wealth coz it's ALL on properties.

I really hope YouTuber does what s/he know… If she is renting Airbnb, she should make a video about "this is where I stayed at". At least, I hope she had a permission from this Airbnb host/owner to shoot for Youtube content. If without a permission, this is serious breach of contract. There are many Airbnb host operating illegal or without proper permit, and I sincerely hope this exposure does not harm or shut down the operation. You do not shoot you don't own if that is a personal property, without authorization. Keep it as a personal memory.
