Asian suburban homes

This is sort of a sequel from my previous thread which is American Homes. Now, I want to focus on middle to upper class houses in suburban part of major Asian cities.

I'll start with HK

Fairview Park

Fairview Park is not representative of the typical Hong Kong suburban home, which is the traditional highrise such as :



Only a very small percentage of Hong Kongers actually live in lowrises.

True but in this thread, I want to focus on houses more than mid-rise or high-rise flats. I'm interested in seeing architecture of houses in Asian suburbs whether it may be Japan, Korea, Malaysia, etc.

Then you should have a title that reflects what you're looking for - ie. Asia's suburban houses.

I didn't even think HK had that many houses. I thought they were mostly for the very rich like those on the peak. That does not look so expensive. These must be very far away.

Some houses from the Philippines, these are for sale, just follow the site.









These are quite typical except for the last one which is a typical cheap beach house hut. The top one is in the far suburbs outside of MetroManila but still in Megamanila.

I can imagine a lowrise house in a concrete jungle such as Japan is an expensive one.

Hong Kong has some suburban style homes that are quite affordable for the middle class, but are just very far away from the city center.
