Do you mean you want to visit all three places in 8 days? It will be very rushed to the point that you won't get anything meaningful out of your trip. You can easily spend 8 days in just one of these cities/regions.

Are you going to see these cities or just visit their airports? Because with 8 days you'd barely have enough time for maybe one day at each city, considering you'd have to spend one day in transit each time you go from one city to the next.

Then cut down on the number of cities you want to visit.

With 8 days, it's reasonable to visit two cities max. Three would be too many since you have to take flights between each of them, costing you anywhere from 4 to 6 hours per trip once you factor in transport time to/from airport.

Well, it is possible President Obama is showing it-- 8 days--four cities: Tokyo, Seoul, KL and Manila...but you need your own private plane, a limo comes to tarmac..so no waste time,and suites in plane to sleep and change clothes.

Like what he did when arrive KL- from airport,straight to Parliament,then to Palace for state banquet,then only back to Ritz Carlton.

Asians like to do 7-day, 8-city tours of Europe as well :-)

The 5-6 hour travel time between cities is rather optimistic though.

HK-Beijing:

1 hour travel to airport.

2 hours advance arrival in airport, check in, immigration and security, spend most time waiting.

4 hours on the plane (scheduled)

add another two for the inevitable delays

an hour to clear immigration and collect bags in Peking

an hour to get to your hotel and checked in

Grand total: 11 hours (effectively a full day).

Hong Kong - Taiwan is only 1 1/2-2 hours flight, and less issues with delays, so that you can do in less time. I've once done a day trip to Taichung, spending about 6 hours there.

Hainan is quite nice (if you don't mind all the Russians), it's really a holiday resort island. The main issue is that it's still China so the hospitality (quality of hotels, services, food, etc) is poor. I've been there, but for those reasons don't really fancy going again for a relaxed beach holiday kind of trip. The island itself was really beautiful though.

Where is this Laotian Island? Loas is a land-lock country.
