    I couldn't agree more! I've enjoyed living where I live but need a change, so I'll be definitely looking once my lease is up end of Summer!

    You could have a look at Park Island as well. A lot smaller than DB though

    It wasn't until too long ago that I was met with incredulous stares whenever I mentioned where I lived but I think the reputation of DB is changing and the new alfresco dining options and perhaps the saturation coverage of air pollution in HK media make people more aware of the benefits of remoter locales like DB. Plus, there's more to life than LKF.

    ha, toolazy to take the ferry everyday...the air conditioned ferry that takes 25 minutes and runs every 12 minutes during morning rush hour. the ferry, where you are guaranteed a seat. the ferry, where you are able to enjoy your morning coffee while you read the paper...

    or stuck in sai kung traffic...or possibly the overcrowded MTR...

    let me think a while before i can decide which sounds like a better option to me...

    It's funny, I get that all the time too- people saying what a hassle it must be to commute all the way from Lamma every day!
    Yes, it is a serious hassle getting on the ferry with a croissant and coffee and reading my book for 25 minutes before I get off 5 minutes walk away from my office!
    Saying that, we're about to change all that and go and live near Sai Kung!

    Not to mention the free wifi access, which allows me to check what kind of day it's likely going to be at the office and decide if I should stock up on some extra caffeine before I get there.

    I've been here for 2 years and HK is great but am getting a bit over living in Central/ HK island. Am investigating my options for when my lease is up in a few months, so am curious to hear from anyone young/ single/ not a family living in DB.
    DB is a good place, h/e there are few with no family and kids. I did a stint there and so far what's been said in threads quite sums it. There is Lantau which you could check up on with a reasonable night life on weekends, nice cottages/flats near green and sea, allowing you to pop out for a jog, offering as clean a lifestyle as DB and Lamma. Allows you to have the option of a scooter or a car. I have recently moved to Lan tau and picked up my first set of wheels in HK and I just love it. great walks, great drives and allows me to continue with party life in Central/Wanchai.

    I'm not single - late 20s, married (no children), but still love a night on the town!

    Sometimes my husband and I feel like the only childless people in DB so I am glad to hear we aren't! Personally, I love living in DB. I've lived in downtown/central areas my entire 20s but DB is a nice change. I love relaxing on a saturday afternoon at the beautiful Siena Club pool, have had some really lovely meals at the water margin, and when you just feel like a cheap realxing drink you can just head over to the plaza... or grab a bench overlooking the water.

    Central and Kowloon are an easy, comfortable ride away if I feel like a little more excitment.
