    Money and Banking

    Hello,
    Moving to HK next week (WOOHOO!) and was wondering what is the best way to handle bringing Money from US to open a bank account. I would assume writing a check out of my checking account in US would cause lengthy holds on funds. What about a cashier's check? Or is it possible/advisable to wire funds from old to new account? Want to make sure funds are available as I work to get settled.

    BTW, have been reading these boards for month and have really appreciated the knowledge shared. THANKS!

    1) Bring a resonable amount in cash / travellers check to help you open the account etc.

    2) Wire the rest of the funds over from your existing US account (Assuming they have internet international wire transfers available).
