    Exchanging Money in HK? (Berlin company, what happened?)

    Does anyone know where the best place to exchange currency in HK? (say from USD to HKD/RMB) ??

    I remember i went to a place called the Berlin Exchange Company in central. Is that place still open?

    Thanks in advance.

    Does anyone know the address? I'm currently in Canada.

    Thanks for the phone number.

    If you're currently in canada, and you're talking about withdrawing and bringing money over to exchange to HKD - I think it is usually better just to withdraw directly from an ATM (in terms of rate)

    If that's not what you're talking about, just ignore me!

    Just went this week during lunch time, many many people, probably 30 in line. I suggest you call ahead for a booking to shorten the wait which was only a few minutes.

    Also, the entrance is around the corner on the small street, not actually on Des Voeux.

    I saw a guy holding board outside Sogo. His buy-sell rate difference was in fraction, dont know if i have seen better rates for USD any where else.
    Similarly for CNY, couple of exchange shops at mong kok & sham shui po provide very good rate. Similarly wan chai may have some good place, years back when i was visiting HK for biz, i used to get good rates at shop on corner of Jhonston road-Hennesey road.
