    Currency exchange: USD to HKD

    What places in HK give the best rates when converting USD to HKD? Worst?

    I'm just looking to get the best rates.

    I'm not sure exactly how much yet, but no more than $4,000 USD total. Would it make a difference if it were smaller amounts vs. larger amounts?

    You can enter Chung king mansion at TST. The first shop on the left has a Cathay Pacific logo. This shop gives good rates as compared to a lot of other shops that I have been to. You can also negotiate a bit if the amount is high

    I agree with you, one of the few hundred threads that deals on the subject, or a combo of them, could be stickied for example.

    There used to be guidelines/articles on general day to day stuff but then half of the people found it easier to create a thread than looking around and going through whole page and other half somehow managed to come up with very very specific query not covered in the guideline IIRC, so either way somebody had to reply..

    if you do FAQ the trolls and the relatively free gwailo will run out of threads to post and make noise on and this place will become boring after a while...
