You won't be wasting your time if you only go to HKG for 12 hours, just there's a lot to see so don't think 12 hours is enough, but if that's all you can get you'll make it work.
So L'emayseh,  :) 12 hours in HKG or ICN?
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

HKG
If I wanna do CX + HKG I arrive in HKG 5:20 AM and my flight to CNX will be leaving 3:25 PM. Still makes sense to do HKG, or the stopover is too short?

It's very short, but still doable.

His is less half that time. Not sure how meaningful the connection in HKG can be with that little time.

With that in mind, just take a look at Dan's post on BA flights from NY. Can't really go wrong with the Caribbean destinations (though i do not recommend Bermuda). Lately CR has been a destination because of the Andaz and its new lower category.
Besides for costa Rica, where else in the carribean are there point hotels that are nice and not exorbitant amount of points? Don't need tons of activities,  relaxation is main thing

Yeah.. From 5:20-3:25 is just going to waste my time going and coming from/to the airport. So ICN it is?
