About the Magazine

From the founders of Inside DB (2002), Square Foot magazine (2005) and Square Foot website (2006), Around DB magazine is a high-quality community magazine dedicated to the residents of Discovery Bay, Tung Chung and South Lantau.

Around DB magazine is the trusted provider of local information and entertainment for DB residents, and increasingly for readers throughout Lantau Island and Hong Kong. As well as providing an essential guide to local businesses, we are truly focused on the interests, hobbies and concerns of our readers, and the magazine is tailored to complement their lifestyle with a special emphasis on family, business and recreation.

As a new addition to our offering, we have launched www.arounddb.com where you can easily find the current magazine and all of our past articles. But more than that, this is your ultimate guide to everything going on in DB and Lantau Island. You will find after-school activities, clubs, churches, schools, restaurants & bars, along with information on past and future events and up-to-date local news. For your convenience, we have also created a Classifieds section with a strong search engine to assist you to buy and sell everything from property and golf carts to second-hand items, and this section can even help you to find a job, a helper or an item you have lost.

Please note that most of the content on the website is free of charge, including the Classifieds section (second-hand, properties and community messages) – all you need to do is register on arounddb.com and it will only take you a few minutes to upload your own post. In addition, we have made it very simple for you to add your own business for free by clicking on 'Add your business' at the bottom of the page.

Our website also holds over 1,000 Lantau property listings, and we allow you to advertise your own property for rent or sale, simply by logging in or connecting with your Facebook account. The process only takes a matter of seconds and it is free of charge!

We continously update our photo galleries of local events. If you have pictures from a previous event or information on upcoming events, please feel free to let us know by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
