Just sorting out the final bits and pieces for my Hong Kong trip in March
I am trying to figure out which is the best way to go money wise.
- get a certain amount of money in HK$ from the post office before I go, and once that is used, rely on my credit card (AUS PO's seem to have a good exchange rate) but the minimum is $500 AU$ and I am not sure I want to carry that much around? It wouldm't bother me really, I would split it up and carry it seperately. I like the idea of having cash on me.
- get a travel money card and load any spending money on that
- use my ATM card over there but I don't want to have to track down an ATM all the time
- use the credit card solely? I am thinking this would be a bit limiting as I am hoping to visit any markets that may not have eftpos?
What do you do when you travel?
Either way, I know I will need some HK $ on me for incidentals like a cup of coffee etc. I will be picked up at the airport along with a group of people so I don't want to hold anybody up by having to source $$ when I get to HK.
What are your thoughts?
