Help!!!! What to eliminate with a VERY short time!

Jump to last reply

I have a business trip in Southeast Asia and the business has arranged round trip air from LAX to Hong Kong. I only have 3-4 days after the business trip and can "country hop" before I fly back to the states from Hong Kong.

How easy is it to "country hop" in Asia?
I have traveled to Europe and extensively in the Caribbean and Central American and it is actually very easy to hop from one country to another. For example, from St. Thomas, I can fly to St. Maarten in the morning to shop and beach and fly back in the evening.

Here are my interests:
I really like textiles, especially Batik. A wonderful poster suggested Singapore as a great place to get Malaysian and Indonesian Batik (Arab Street) so I would like to do a quick trip to Singapore. If anyone knows of a batik store or stores in Hong Kong, I could skip Singapore, but Singapore or Hong Kong would be my major shopping spots.

I wanted to see Chiang Mai more than Bangkok - have to save Bankok for another trip when I have more time - but I could do short trip just to explore the city of Chiang Mai - the night market, the smaller town ambiance, etc. Does the Four seasons spa in Chaing Mai allow day visitors?

Lastly, 2 days in Phuket - may do a snorkel trip - relax - that's it.

I don't have any grand plans, do not plan to visit a lot,

Is the order of my trip ok? Hong Kong - Singapore - Chiang Mai - Phuket - Hong Kong. What are the cheapest air passes for a trip like this?
Any other advice would be appreciated.
I need advice asap to finalize air reservations.
