Hong Kong is also big on art, music, and theater. Although housing is tight, it's no different from other major metropolitan areas, such as New York City and London. The overall cost of living is 30% cheaper than in New York, and there are many fun travel opportunities nearby (e.g., in South East Asia and the China mainland). The total tax rate is capped at 15%. The Hong Kong dollar is pegged to the US dollar.
