Often called Disco Bay or just DB among
expatriates, Discovery Bay was developed to be a clean air area on Lantau Island
in the 1980's. Even now only a limited number of public light buses and other
fuel-powered vehicles run there. Some residents do have golf carts, however.
it is a ways from urban Hong Kong, it does offer you a slower and quieter
lifestyle. Coupled with the beach (man-made) and the hiking trails, it is a nice
hide-out from all the crowds in Hong Kong.
If your home faces the right
direction, you can actually see Disneyland from across the water, complete with a free view of fireworks every night - from afar!
It can be reached by ferry from the Central Outlying Ferry Piers located across from IFC which is above the MTR Hong Kong station.
