Peace, tranquility, and serenity - not the first words that would come to your mind when you think of holidaying in Hong Kong. But there are the pockets of laid-back accommodations that are available in the region’s numerous suburban waterfront residences. Lantau Island’s Discovery Bay, a mere 25-minute ferry ride from Hong Kong Island, has plenty of seaside apartments that seem far-flung from the main island’s frantic urban sprawl. Its proximity to key destinations such as the Hong Kong Disneyland and the Hong Kong International Airport makes it an ideal location to stay for holidays. Check out these top 15 Airbnbs in Hong Kong’s Discovery Bay.
This clean, contemporary apartment with a double bed overlooks the tranquil Discovery Bay and is a 5-minute walk from Discovery Bay Plaza where you can use the ferry service to reach Hong Kong Island in about 25 minutes. It has free parking on its premises, as well as lift access, wireless internet, and buzzer intercom. For additional fees, maid service is available for cooking and cleaning. You can also pay to gain access to the gymnasium, swimming pool, and restaurants at the Discovery Bay Residents Club.

Sometimes less is more. This Discovery Bay, Hong Kong rental is pleasantly uncluttered and spacious, and coupled with the green scenery outside, provides an exceptionally peaceful atmosphere for your stay. It is a great alternative to staying in the smog-filled Hong Kong city center. Pets are allowed in this apartment, which also has free parking on its premises. There are shuttle-bus rides out of the bay to key locations in Lantau like Disneyland, the airport, and Ngong Ping Village, a stretch of Buddhism-related tourist attractions, atop a hill on the island, that are reached by cable car. Check out the massive Tian Tan Buddha statue at the village, sitting serenely on the hilltop.

One of the charms of this destination is that private cars are generally not allowed into the area. Residents can cycle or walk to the nearby waterfront shops and eateries, otherwise, there is an efficient internal bus service to ferry them around the bay. So while this Discovery Bay apartment may be a bit further away from the seaside, the nearby bus-stops means that it is still convenient enough for guests to explore the bay. This two-bed apartment comes with a view of the mountainous backdrop to the bay and comes with new appliances and an open kitchen.
