    Transferring money to the UK

    Hi so I'm from the UK and have a bank account there with NatWest. I am currently working in HK for 6 months but I plan to save at least a few thousand pounds. What is the best way for me to transfer the money from HKD straight into my UK bank account?

    Just ask your bank to make an international transfer

    But surely thats a rather unsafe option, and local exchange counters in HK seem to undervalue the pound a lot

    Few thousand is pocket change and wont violate any "cash" restrictions which are around 8000
    Get it out and put it in your pocket and dont drop it
