Clothing in Hong Kong vs Thailand

First time trip to Hong Kong, Bangkok and Chiang Mai. Which would have the better quality and prices for clothing.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi Linda -

We've bought clothes in both places and my husband had a suit made in BKK. From what we could tell, BKK is definitely cheaper overall. HK, however, is very "hip" when it comes to styles. They are very western in many ways. HK would probably be better quality but it would also be quite a bit more expensive. Much of it depends on what you want to buy.

We just spent 10 days in BKK 3 months ago and have been to HK on 2 separate 1 week trips. Not been to Chaing Mai yet. That's on our next trip this coming November.

If you have any quesitons, please feel free to email me. I have my HK and BKK maps and trip notes handy.

Great, thanks Lynn for the information. This is helpful. As I haven't been to Asia before you always wonder which is best.
