    1. Where is Soho district? Have you been to Soho? What ‘unique character’ does it have?

    2. How do surging rents affect Hong Kong? Do you agree with the property agents’ view that the government should not interfere in the free market? Why?

    1, Soho district is in Central. I've not been there before.
    2, Rising rent is a big problem in Hong Kong, so I don't agree with the property agency.

    The surging rents cause the people be more hard to have their own buisness. There will be more luxury brands and shops of the same company. The citizens will have less choices and there will be inflation. But in the other way, I do agree with the property agent's view because Hong Kong is known for its 'free market'. If the government interfere the 'free market', the reputation of Hong Kong market will be at stake.

    Soho is in Central. I have not been there. I think the ‘unique character’ is there are many artists there.
    2. How do surging rents affect Hong Kong? Do you agree with Do you agree with the property agents’ view that the government should not interfere in the free market?
    The surging rents affects Hong Kong by people starting not to open shops in Hong Kong resulting in economic loss. I don't agree with the property agents’ view that the government should not interfere in the free market, because I think that the government should do something to lower the renting price.

    The Soho is located in the Hong Kong Island. I have never been to Soho as i am restricted by age. But from the video clip or TV shows, Soho is a place that people relax themselves by having a cup of alcohol or enjoy the performance that made by some artists.

    1) It is districted in Central and i haven't been there.Therefore i don't know what is the 'unique character' in Soho as well.
    2) The surging rents is affected many shops and company of their own business.I agree with the property agents’ view that the government should not interfere in the free market because HK known as a free market place in the internectional, the government shouldn't destory the HK unique free trade market, however i think the government can put some money to support some small company and shops to reduce their burden to do their business.

    Due to the surging rent of Hong Kong, Lots of shops cannot afford the high and expensive rent. People will close down their shops. I don't agree with the property agents’ view that the government should not interfere in the free market. It is because if the government do not interfere in the free market, some people may high the price up .
