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:There is an OK bike shop in Canton place. Halfway between Leide and Tancun metro station. It sells "Cronus" cycles. Expensive, but they look ok. Nice frames and with Shimano kit on. I think they start at about 3000RMB and go up to the price of a car. I think this is the site: http://cronus-bike.en.alibaba.com/ There are also a few "Merida" bike shops about. There is one local to me but that's on the edge of GZ. http://2014.merida-bikes.com/en_int I don't know about a "bike street", but no doubt there will be one somewhere. A quick google actually directs the seeker to this very website: http://www.echinacities.com/Guangzhou/city-guide/Ride-On-A-Guide-to-Buying-or-Renting-Bikes-in-Guangzhou -- ScotsAlan
