Q: Need a travel advice...

I need a travel advice to Hong Kong, Thailand or any other surrounding countries whichever you think is good and inexpensive...

 

I am looking for a 4-5 days trip (preferably in Mid Sep - trying to avoid any Chinese holiday). 

 

Looking for quite place, away from the daily rush... a greener pasture, literally 

 

 

Suggestions on Where and how much approx it would it cost?

If you want inexpensive don't go to Hong Kong.

 

Why not Indonesia? Not as prostitution-y as Thailand, still cheap, lots of interesting culture, and plenty of beautiful islands and scenery. It's pretty high up on my list.  A round trip ticket to Jakarta will run you about  2500 RMB.

Thailand is cheap and worth a visit. Just don't stay in Bangkok for long, you know why. But the two islands, can't remember the names, are beautiful and accommodation right on the beach is super cheap. Avoid Hong Kong, it's way too expensive. Taiwan is not a bad option either, although I've never been. You could stay in China and head somewhere like the south west or way up north like Inner Mongolia. I would imagine it's pretty cheap there.

I'd go to Thailand. Time is a factor so fly into Koh Samui, an Island in Thailand. Lots of reasonably quiet areas there. You could also get on a ferry and go to Koh Phangan or Koh Tao - two smaller Islands very close to Samui - very easily, they are smaller and quieter.

The Filis is the answer, try Boracay or Palau
Samui in Thailand is another choice

Agreed with others here, HK is a bad choice for what you're looking for.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
