I have found a sentence on Google. "While in Bangkok, you should go to the theatre."

I really keen to know whether I can use another conjunction "when" as the grammar rule in the above sentence.

E.g,"When in Bangkok, you should go to the theatre."

  • The can mean the same thing OR: While means during the time you are in a place; When can mean: If you go to Bangkok.

"While in" is closer to "during the time you are there".

"When in" is closer to "if you happen to be there"
