    Long story short, I already hold some physical holdings in PM's, but soon I get to plan a trip to pretty much anywhere in the world for a week. (honeymoon!)

    But, being BHW, you know I couldn't just let this opportunity go to waste.
    So, where and how should I make this sandwich?

    So far we are looking at Caymen or Aruba next season, followed by a visit to Ireland or Netherlands the next season after.
    But, some other spots may offer an even better setup. Seychelles, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc??

    Somebody has some insight to share here on this - please share your insights!

    You're in way over your head on this one mate. Just based on your post I can tell you don't know enough to do this on your own.

    Talk with a real PROFESSIONAL firm (not a fly-by-night shop) and spend the money to do it right the first time. this is NOT something you want to skimp on because it will bite you in the ass.

    As for recommendations, I have one: ocra.com

    Never knew that you have to have at least bachelor degree to plan your vacation...
    Might have to rethink my life!

    @ OP I suggest you choose a place you want to visit. Not just a popular place, but a place you would really want to visit. I would recommend Japan, South Korea, HK, but if you have no interest in their culture, history, way of life in general and are looking only for a beach to relax, then any island should do the job lol :p

    My understanding of OP's post was that he wanted to combine vacation with business. I'm speaking from the standpoint of business.

    That being said, Hong Kong is my favorite city in the world. Should you want to visit you can nail down both business and pleasure :)

    I thought he was trying to hide the cost of his honeymoon in one country as a business trip in another.

    Gentlemen,

    Now that we have exchanged pleasantries, allow me to clarify my considerations.
    I'm just thinking if i'm going to the caribbean, and maybe europe a year or 2 later, is this something I could or should consider doing?

    Forgive me but it couldn't be any more complex, then it is to create a corp and open a bank account in the US, which is simple (for those who've pierced the veil).

    singapore, HK is just way too expensive - both stuff wise and hotels. Nothing much to see or do, unless you like to check out Universal Studio's and all the holiday fun stuff with a city full of buildings. Honeymoon sounds like you looking for something calm, quite and exotic. Seychelles sounds nice but I would recommend you check out maldives, sri lanka, or pretty much some place in the caribbean.

    Opening a ltd company in HK is fairly simple, and bank account too, however I believe you need to wait around 8-10 days before you can open the bank account. If that's cool with you, I can vouch for HK as a awesome place to make plenty of tax free profits. :)

    For your futur business, HK is good because you can easily open a company there.
    If you dont make any trade with your hk company and an other HK company, you dont pay any taxes and you can use company money as your own money...

    Go to Macau and just breathe in the heady ambiance of one of the world's most exciting full on 24 hour a day metropolis...

    Laced with all the exotic vibrance that only the Orient can deliver and now in full retard mode as America attempts to bestow progress on this fabulous gambling enclave steeped in culture and heritage, by offering all that is best from USA - McDonalds - KFC - Starbucks et al

    But bare in mind the Chinese Macanese indigenous folks are way to smart to let the USA destroy this place which is the usual USA modus operandi...

    Macau is and will remain the biggest casino center of the world, embellished with a vast array of all that is best in hospitality - a plethora of 5 star and luxury hotels - restaurants - shopping malls - historical buildings and simply so much more...

    How do I know - Macau aka Macao was my home for seven years - I just love the place and I have never had one gamble in a casino, because there is so much to enjoy doing other leisure activities

    Have you ever been to Singapore or Hong Kong before man? Two of the most impressive cities in the world, and there is no shortage of stuff to do. Yes, they are expensive but not THAT expensive.

    Yes, it is more complex. Lots of regulatory, compliance and reporting requirements and the bank account is more difficult to open than in the US.
