i would love to visit hong kong! i am in thailand for a wee bit and then to vietnam...i am wonder if there is any cheap ways of getting to hong kong from eg, vietnam?

also how much would it cost? i guess flying is the only way...unless i want to go through china...

if its going to cost a lot then i wont bother...but i just think if that im out that far then.......id like to visit...aaaaaaaa so frustrating this is because there is so many things and places to see but so little time:(

i would plan to go to hong kong from hanoi in vietnam.

Airasia has cheap flights from Bangkok to Macau, from where it's an hour to Hongkong by ferry. If you really want to go there from Hanoi, then you could fly with airasia from hanoi to bangkok and on to Macau as well.
If you book well in advance, you might be able to book a return flight for about 50 USD, otherwise it will be closer to 100 USD, that is from Bangkok to Macau.

Going overland is also a pretty easy, though obviously more time consuming option. The Southwest of China is also a great place and well worth some time if you have it to spare. I don't know the costs or exactly how long it takes to take the train from Hanoi to HK, but I just wanted to add that if you do chose overland, remember that you have to consider the cost of a Chinese Visa. If you fly you obviously don't have to worry about one, so it sounds like the flights Utrecht mentions can end up almost as cheap.

I think going directly from Bangkok is cheaper than going thru mainland China. The air ticket from BKK to HKG is around 300US (return). I am not sure the price. I paid this amount when I travelled to BKK last time.
