Mainland tourists in DB

The press is reporting that last Sunday's disastrous tourist invasion in Tung Chung is unlikely to be solved soon.  The B6 bus from the new bridge to TC, and the B5 to Sunny Bay, have already become well established on tour companies' itineraries.

How long before they discover the convenience of a side trip to DB and how do residents feel about this?

Why do you think HKRI is in the process of developing Plaza?

DB has been a holiday resort for many years, we have seen huge changes in the last ten years, I am sure that their has been people who have lived here longer than we have and have seen larger changes. HKR are only interested in the development of DB and not the residents.

HKR’s pet toad Francis Chiu is proposing a direct bus route from DB to the Zhuhai bridge, add a stop at DB tunnel for airport buses and a Bridge to Sunny Bay bus route. While this could make occasional trips for DB residents slightly more convenient, it would inevitably draw many, many more mainland tourists.

Yes a total joke,  this muppet says he represents the people of DB, but you try and get hold of him to answer a question or two, it will not happen, he just ignores everything.

Has anyone seen what the bridge day trippers have done to Tung Chung and Sunny Bay?  Just battled my way through a few score.  They'd no idea where they were or where they were going.

Guess that makes the ferry the only civilized way to go.  For now, that is.

This makes people do not like living in Tung Chung and it'll affect DB too.  Embarrassed
