That sounds great and like Mochjas said if 3 days in HKG is a little too long take Tuesday or Wednesday for a day trip to Macau or the mainland.

Others may disagree but I just don't think 5-6 days is enough for Thailand and I'd personally want a slightly calmer Intro to Asia.  :P
Sounds good, thanks!

suggestions for warm place to go in January with a baby for 1.5 weeks outside of usa? as of now, hawaii is top choice based on past recommendations.

not want to spend lots of $ on trip including excursions, so am using points for plane & hotel. not need kosher food since bringing my own, jewish community etc.... but flight time is a consideration. hence not going to thailand, maldives or new zealand no matter how much i want to.

All else being equal, which is better for shabbos, HKG or SIN?

I'm thinking of flying straight into SIN on Mon morning, spending two days there, flying to HKG on Wed, spending a day in Macau, then Thu-Sun in HKG and then back to SIN on Sun to catch SQ back home.

I wanted to do SQ and LH but you may be right, that probably makes the most sense.

been there, but thank you.

Panama is amazing and the excursions won't kill your budget like Hawaii.  You could lug food if you want but they have better markets and restaurants than the US.

PEK or PVG for 1.5-2 days, which would you do?

PEK the great wall of China.
Makes sense, PH is supposed to be amazing as well. How long do you think I need there? Flight from SIN gets in at 2:40, stay one night?
