I guess the reason you weren't able to duplicate this itinerary is because it says non in dxb. But what are the cities included in area 3?

I am in BKK in mid December for a quick mileage run. Was going to do a tour in BKK for a day, but this looks like much more fun

I assume that a day trip to HKG (returning same day) is considered transit and no quarantine needed ? That would complicate things if it did...

no it's not transit - transit has to be to a third country. by december things might have opened up but the BKK-HKG-BKK in current setting they would not let you board in BKK/

Personally you have to be brave to book this ticket, when I published in late 2020 the EK BKK - MCT Tour de Champagne, late 2021 seemed reasonable..
.
Now maybe mid 2023, close to End of Schedule might be worth a try... But December, I might be wrong but highly doubtful...

HKG now follows China, and Mainland is not showing any sign of opening... While I love HKG and it's food/culture... I believe it will be a while if ever that things go back to normal....

That rule was abolished on the 1 AUG 2022.
