I'm planning a trip to Asia September 1-17. My only commitment is that I have to be in Hong Kong from the 9th to the 12th. I'll probably start in Tokyo before heading to HK, but I'm undecided on what to do after the 12th. The options I've come up with are: Stay in HK: I've only been there once before, and it was a quick 2-day visit. Go to Taiwan: I love Taipei, but I visited twice last year so maybe it's time for something new. Go back to Japan: Kinda silly, but I love Japan. Shenzhen: But those darn visa costs! What interesting places am I missing that are within range of HK and are worth the flight time for a few day's stay? A quick search on UA's site shows an SFO-NRT-HKG itinerary pricing out at around $1,300, and I'd be willing to add another $700 or so.
