Exclamation Singapore vs Hong Kong

I have been offered a sales job in Asia to be based out of SIngapore or Hong Kong. I am single and have lived in Singapore for 2 years previously, and found life there to be good - although when it came to socially out on the town drinking it was expensive. For those of you out there who may have experienced life in Singapore and Hong KOng, from a single persons perspective what was better????

For a single person it has to be Hong Kong hands down! I lived in Singapore for 5+ years with our two school-aged children and although Singapore is ideal for families, it is rather dull for those without children.....yes I've been 'out on the town' in Honkers and it definitely has more life to it.

There are loads of expats who post on http://www.expatsingapore.com - and the question you have posted has often been raised on the forums there; just check the forum archive or post the question again and you will get some very informative replies!

Good Luck!

I've only visited both places on business, I'd say Hong Kong easily! Singapore is oppressively hot all year and I found it quite sterile, once you have been to the little island of Sentosa and the night zoo that's about it.
Hong Kong is just so much more dynamic, and offers a total east meets west experience of both China and Britain.
