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:Do you mind providing a link, or a source for this ?Honestly, I think it would be self-defeating to propagate Marx's ideas in China, at least for the powers-to-be. It would be bad for the harmony of China. That's why I'm asking you to provide some serious source, that sounds just so irrational to me, unless it's a completely warped rewriting of Marx. I would much less surprised to see Kong Zi pushed forward and Lu Xun put in the shadow. Ho... It happened already http://szdaily.sznews.com/html/2009-08/19/content_742530.htm !Why I think so ? Marx said something about those who hold the capital, and those who generate capital while not owning it. That those with the capital owns the right to make laws, the ability to enforce the laws and bend reality to their will. Those who don't own capital but make capital tends to be exploited and kept in their situation. Why on Earth one would harshly criticize the very foundation of modern China, if it's not to undermine it ? -- DrMonkey
