Expatriate Insurance News: Hong Kong is 'city of contrasts'

Expatriates living in Hong Kong may already be aware of the contrasting aspects of the region.

Dawn Page, director for UK & Northern Europe for the Hong Kong Tourism Board, highlighted the fact that a stroll through Victoria Park to watch people start their day with a Tai Chi session is in "complete contrast to the usual bright lights and bustle of Hong Kong".

However, expatriate insurance customers in Hong Kong who haven't already done so might also want to take a trip on the Star Ferry.

This is "a must", according to Ms Page, who explained that the boat offers one of the best views of the harbour.

But people considering relocating to Hong Kong might want to check that they have their international health insurance in place first.

According to Expatforum.com, the country does offer a good standard of healthcare but people who are insistent on seeing a western doctor may find themselves paying large premiums.

In fact, western doctors are likely to charge more than double compared to a local doctor with similar qualifications and expertise.
