best place to be in HK if you have a family with kids. if you're single or just with your missus i would avoid it.
ferry to central (ifc ferry pier) takes about 22 min. ferry goes every 15 min during rush hour.
taxi takes only 17 min to central (cheung kong center / hsbc building) but it cost a lot (about $220)
also have MTR to Kwai Fong/Tsing Yi/Tsuen Wan and take direct shuttle bus from there to PI.
Planes aren't noisy at all. PI is by far a lot quieter than any places on HK Island or Kowloon as there are no cars.

I will live there just couple of month and I will be travelling a lot. I thought it will be close to Airport. I need some quiet place to stay with my fiance.
In any case, I will ask the agency about possible flats in the area.
Thank You once again.
Ferry is about $18 for residents (and $22 for visitors)
Airport is not too far away. we have shuttle bus going there 24/7 living every 30 min. it takes exactly 30 min to get there.
Park Island is pretty nice to relax. You will enjoy the 4 clubhouses, 3 outdoor and 2 indoor pools, the jacuzzis, steam rooms, saunas, tennis courts, badminton, squash, pool, snooker, ping pong, climbing wall, football, basketball. you name it. best club house you can get in the whole of HK thats for sure. and the Ma Wan beach as well. Just come have a look one week end. plenty of estate agents. they'll show u a few flats
If you like living in a giant resort-type development devoid of any local character, then maybe Park Island is for you. TBH, you wouldn't even know you're in HK. It's like a little cocoon of exclusivity. Alternatively you could try DB.
Probably, it will suits my needs best. I just need to find out how to fix all the issues with visas and it will be good.
Thank You very much.
Thx and See You soon maybe,
To Mr dollars :
Okay. DB? what You mean? Maybe, I should try to find something over there.
I am looking for something quiet which includes all convenience. I dont want to live in a heart of HK. It is too noisy.
Db is similar to Park Island, just more developed and more restaurants etc. 24 hour ferry to central, all the amenities, lots of other expats.
