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: This won't help overly with your situation, but maybe shed some light
A:This won't help overly with your situation, but maybe shed some light on what's required. When I had my criminal history thing done in Australia, it needed to be an original document, which was notorised by the Department of Foreign Affairs, before going to the Chinese consulate to be apostilled. Fortunately, our government has its shit together, and it was fairly painless... the Federal Police let me order the check online (and I even emailed them to request more copies, and I was replied to within hours saying "sure, no problem - but the max we can send is 3, which I'll send for free!) DFAT also knows the deal, and has a pretty quick turn-around time ("Oh, you want this for China - yeah, no problem!") My biggest problem was determining if the Chinese stamp could be done at any Chinese consulate, or ONLY at their embassy (in Canberra).... after LOTS of emails with incorrect information, the local consulate in Brisbane said "we have exaclty the same powers (red stamps) as the embassy, so yes, you can get it done with us!" But... it had to be done in person!!! So, no mail-ins... and as with all things Chinese, passports and other ID and such BS was needed!!! So - as NZT suggested - ask the Chinese embassy in London. -- Shining_brow
