The Hong Kong neighborhood of Repulse Bay couldn’t be more different from all that its name suggests.

One of the most upscale — and in demand — areas in the city according to Mansion Global, the beachfront neighborhood is nestled between mountains facing the South China Sea and seems far more than a 20-minute drive away from Hong Kong’s downtown.

“It’s really as close as Hong Kong gets to the French Riviera,” said Savills’ Edina Wong to the Global Mansion.

Comprising of both condo towers and detached and semi-detached homes, the minimum price per square foot in the bay is about $5,570 compared to Hong Kong’s average price of $1,580. A townhouse in Repulse Bay starts at a listing price of $32 million.

Part of the reason it’s so in-demand is the more relaxed, beach-town vibe of the area as well as the neighborhood’s “excellent feng shui” — a result of being sandwiched between sea and mountains and having a “dragon gate.” [Mansion Global] Erin Hudson
