Hmm, I must be making that all up. Hundreds of aircraft taking off on full thrust just kilometers away and turning south right on top of Park Island. The fact that the Park Island Owners’ Committee is complaining about aircraft noise to the beloved government, the Airport Authority and LegCo etc is also made up. It is surely very quite and all frogs are happy.
I would say Park Island is without doubt probably the second noisiest place in Hong Kong after the airport itself and probably Tung Chung when it comes to aircraft noise. But all these airplanes probably also only exist in my imagination and it is in reality very very quite.
I am sorry, but I am just puzzled by you guys. Nothing personal. You remind me of the said people who REALLY SHOUT BACK AT ME because all the aircraft noise at the beach on park island when I ask them about it and they say it's all fine and very very quite.
Geoexpaters living there love it and say it's silent like hell, birds are chirping and frogs do their thing too. It's in general the quitest place in Hong Kong and paradise on earth. I am not just referring to this thread but older ones too.
Owners Committee is complaining to everyone about aircraft noise.
According to my friends at the airport a few (hundred) planes fly over PI every day. And very low too and often on full throttle.
Everyone's tolerance for noise is different and as you can see not even the inhabitants of PI are sure if it's noisy or not.
