Hello. I am about to go to Hong Kong on vacation and was hoping you could answer some of these questions for me.
1. My folks made me buy about $2000 in traveler's cheques. I then subsequently went online to read about them, this ancient technology, to find they are pretty difficult to use and may not be very accepted in a more advanced place like Hong Kong. Should I go get my money back or take them with me just in case?
2. What cell phone bands do I need to make calls in Hong Kong? I know there are cell phone shops everywhere but I want to see if my existing phones work before I go. I have some old cheap phones, one is 900/1800 and one is 900/1800. Will these suffice? I do plan on getting a new cell phone there though before I leave.
3. What is the best method to carry around money? Right now I have a Bank of America Visa Checkcard (debit) and a Visa credit card from the same bank. Would these suffice or should I also add some other venues?a
Hope someone can answer these questions. Have a nice day.
