I'm having doubts! Should I move to Hong Kong?

Question: I'm now experiencing doubts about moving to Hong Kong from the UK. Should I do it?

Mr B replies: I'm biased, but I'd say give it a go. Some people like it and end up staying "for maybe another year", and end up finding they've been here for ten or more. A fair number find themselves having enjoyed it, but looking forward to going home at the end of their 2-year contract.

I've only ever met one person that couldn't wait to leave. He was out here because his wife had been posted here. He had to have chips with every meal, hated Chinese food, didn't like foreign people, and spent his time here living in a little British bubble. If that sounds like you, you might not enjoy it either, but if it's just a case of butterflies, I'd advise you to take the plunge.

I've relocated overseas three times, and have come to the conclusion that I should expect to get occasional attacks of feeling a bit lonely and miserable for the first three or four months, as it takes me a while to get settled in and make new friends.
