Living in Hong Kong

On this page you will find some useful information for your stay in Hong Kong.

GSIS unfortunately cannot compensate interns, therefore please be advised that you will have to cover all expenses yourself. This includes for examples:

  • air fare
  • accomodation
  • transportation
  • meal costs
  • insurances

Accomodation in Hong Kong can be quite expensive and finding a good place to stay is not so easy. Even a small room can cost about HK$ 3000 per month. We advise that you look for accomodation before coming to Hong Kong.

It is a good idea to subscribe to the trainee-newsletter from the German Chamber of Commerce as it contains rooms on offer. (
