    Possible business conference Hong Kong, Seoul or Tokyo?

    Ok, an opportunity just popped up for a developer business conference in either one of these cities come mid May. Haven’t had much time to think about it yet, but just thought I’d shoot this off as the window is closing. Also need to shop for hotels.

    So any immediate thoughts on the destinations or possible accommodation / activities? Just 3 or 4 days (1 day for the conference). Only been to Hong Kong before, but that was a very long time ago…

    EDIT: Oh, just to add, hotels and discretionary spending is on my dime. Airfare not an issue.

    Tokyo without a doubt

    I was just there and loved it!!

    And it is cheap!!

    Let me know where your conference is situated and i might be able to recommend hotels.

    We stayed at Hilton Shinjuku for about 170usd but there are nice Japanese hotels all around for 80-90usd

    Beers all over are about 120baht.....yakitori and ramen places cheap as chips.

    I can give you a much more detailed report aftet weekend.....heading to Chicago

    Thanks Marc. And yes, I kind of wanted to do Tokyo as well, but the dates fit me better going to Hong Kong. Not decided yet though. Just got the venues:

    Tokyo: Sumitomo Fudosan Nishi-Shinjuku Bldg
    Hong Kong: 10 Harcourt Rd, Central, Hong Kong, S.A.R

    So you are in Shinjuku
    Perfect location and were we stayed

    Let me know your budget for hotels and I will suggest some hotels

    You are also right by Golden Gai(alley of small bars) and Yakitori Alley
