Q: Is there a Lloyds TSB branch in Hong Kong? Or any other British bank for that matter?

So I'm gonna be spending a few days in Hong Kong after travelling around SE Asia for a few weeks. Basically when I leave China I hope to have enough cash on me to last for my SE Asia travels, and then take out some more when I get to HK to fund my HK trip (after which I will be heading to Japan). 

 

I don't wanna have to carry loads of cash around SE Asia though am also a bit worried about charges if I withdraw money out from my British bank via HK. How would you do this? I also have a Chinese bank account so maybe just keep money in there and withdraw it when I get to HK?

 

Thanks users, thusers.

There is HSBC in Hong Kong, and 4 other UK Banks as I can see from the listing of all HK Banks:

I guess, it is better (cheaper) to hold money on Chinese bank, and get funds out in HK, than use UK Bank.

A:I have a few Chinese friends who got their driving license and will be the first to say they are either terrible drivers, or can't drive at all. My ex girlfriend is one of them, she told me how it worked when she did it. Like Xinyuren said, the driving school is not concerned about putting competent drivers on the road, their only concern is money. They 'teach' you to get the car moving and I think drive around some traffic cones or something... a few very basic competency tests.But, just like every other test, license, qualification, certification, red stamp or general permission to do something here you are expected to pay the person if you want to receive it. It's probably not even seen as all that unfair. The person with the power bought their position not for the salary but for the power to extort money for something people need.Pay the money and give them the face they 'deserve' for being in a position of power, you get what you want. Don't pay and it doesn't matter how good you are, there will always be some vaguely worded rule or law you failed to adhere to so.... sorry. Try again. The scary thing is that often, all you have to do is pay the money and you can't fail the test. Universities are a great example of this."You can't fail me (outrage outrage) , I already paid for it".I think of this every time I get on a plane, or go to a hospital. Or cross the street.  -- Stiggs
