Question: Singapore or Hong Kong? Which location for a dedicated server for Chinese websites?
Answer: Both Singapore and Hong Kong are good locations if you want to reach Mainland Chinese users. Hong Kong is physically closer to Mainland China and has a lot of good connectivity. Between Singapore and Hong Kong, Hong Kong is a winner if you can find a dedicated server that fits your budget.
Singapore and Hong Kong are good locations if you want to reach every other part of Asia. Hong Kong will provide a little edge against Singapore in terms of latency and access to Mainland China.
