Bangkok or Phuket?

Jump to last reply

I imagine it's entirely apples and oranges, and kind of a stupid question, nevertheless...

I am an American male, 55 years old, traveling solo to Hong Kong in mid to late October for a trade show, and am considering a short trip to Thailand for 2-4 days. I'm not really a sight seer or museum goer, more into walking around, sitting at a cafe or bar, exploring holes in the walls...

I suppose my question is similar to... " I'm traveling from Asia, should I spend 3 days in Manhattan or 3 days at Cape Cod?" or something to that effect.

Or maybe here's a better question, is it worth flying from Hong Kong to either Bangkok or Phuket for only 2 days??

Like I said, I gather the answers depend mostly on my interests, but any insight is appreciated, regardless...

Also, should I fly back from Thailand to New York, or better to fly back to Hong Kong and then back to New York?
