Hong Kong or Bangkok??

Hi all

So I have 5 days to kill before my sales conference which is in Bangkok.

I will be travelling alone and I wanted to take the time to explore /relax/ and maybe check out the night life.

I have been to BKK before and loved it. Have only been to HK for one day as a lay over.

My question is

As I’m travelling alone and want to experience a bit of everything. Where is my time best spent ? BKK or HK? And why???

Help me decide. :)

You have been in BKK before and go there again. So for something new go to HK.

If you don't explain what things you like, hard to give more advice.

I'll say HK, since you haven't spent time there but have in BKK. Now if you asked between Phuket and BKK or HK, I'd opt for a few days in Phuket over the other two.

With 5 days, there are other options that come to mind, such as Siem Reap in Cambodia (Angkor Wat) or Hanoi and Halong Bay.
