You heard right - there are a number of threads on the forum where you can see some information, like:

However, they rarely bother people - you'll be lucky to see one even.

We just had a rather large brown one with black stripes in our outside toilet, about a metre or more in length.

This site has some useful information about dangerous snakes:

http://www.hkoutdoors.com/hk-wildlife/d ... -kong.html

Most brownish snakes are likely to be the non-venemous rat snake. The bamboo pit viper is similar to a harmless green snake, the greater green snake. The viper has a triangular head. Better to err on the side of caution, though.

There are snakes all over Hong Kong. You can see reports each year of snakes being removed even from highly urbanized areas, such as the Burmese python that was taken out of a business in Central last year.
