Due to a fluid work/living situation I have the freedom to try to make the following dream happen: to live for a month each in several cities of Asia (perhaps Tokyo, Hong Kong, Seoul, Shanghai, Hanoi, Bangkok, Phnom Penh) while working on a personal project. My core question is trying to find out if this is feasible within my budget and to ask for recommendations for accommodations in each city. Details within. [more inside]

I have 2 chinese characters tattooed onto my left arm. I'm travelling to Tokyo and Hong Kong next year. It will be winter so probably a non-issue, but what would the reaction be if I were to show it? What about public onsen in Japan? Would it cause any problems?
Tokyo Travel: I am arriving at Narita at 9:30pm Saturday night, with reservations at a hotel near Shimbashi Station that evening. Is this trip possible? [more inside]
I need to estimate and compare the expense of a two-week business trip to the following cities: Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Beijing. [more inside]
I've decided to go on vacation this year and I'm in the early stages of planning it. My style is backpack/hostel/budget travel. Yes, I already know about Let's Go and Lonely Planet. I'll be leaving 9/2 and coming back the 14th. I've got my destinations narrowed to the following: Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, or Moscow. Any experience/advice please.
