Banks 

Hong Kong is one of Asia’s financial hubs and this shows itself in the number and range of different banks you’ll find here –even up on Victoria Peak you can get hold of cash from an ATM!  Main branches include the Bank of America (Bank of America Tower, 12 Harcourt Road, Central), the Bank of China (1 Garden Road, Central) and HSBC (29 Queen’s Road, Central). They all have ATMs, offer money exchange and are open Monday to Friday, 9 am-4 pm and Saturday 9 am-noon.   

 

ATMs generally accept most major international cards, but check before putting your card in the machine. The territory is also fairly switched on to payment by credit card – most major hotels, restaurants and shops will take plastic. 

 

Exchange Offices 

 For those who prefer to pay with paper, you’ll find Hong Kong overflowing with exchange offices – the ground floor of Chungking Mansions on Nathan Road has some of the best rates, but make sure you compare a few places. Shops tend to be open from early in the morning until 9 or 10 pm.
