I know Singapore's skyline looks better than Tokyo and Seoul in pictures but on ground level both Tokyo and Seoul own (much more urban canyons) Singapore.

Tokyo and Hong Kong all the way - the 2 best cities in all of Asia.

In fact, I have plans to do exactly that vacation package sometime in the next few years, hopefully.

I specifically stated this is a combo thread about VACATIONS, not Living. Did you bother to read anything I stated in my original post?

if shopping is also a big priority, i would do hong kong and seoul....my female friends found great deals on stylish apparel, perfume, etc. in hk and seoul...they mentioned it was difficult to find any stores with decent quality wardrobe for bargains in tokyo and singapore....personally, i would go with tokyo and hk as i am not concerned about shopping, but just experiencing the culture, landmarks, and food.

i would prefer seoul and a less busy japanese city over tokyo. i would love to experience the food and landmarks in both places, but i feel tokyo is just so busy. i always love korean and japanese scenery and landscaping. their gardens are to die for!

Tokyo+Singapore vs. Hong Kong+Seoul would be fair, Tokyo-HK is one of the best combo's in the world.
Put it up against NYC-San Francisco or London-Paris.

They are both impressive, exciting, intriguing vacation combo packages having plenty to offer for people visiting.

I select Hong Kong/Tokyo to experience first and then try Singapore/Seoul later on in life.
