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:Before RP expiration, your present employer must take you to PSB (police), where you'll get 30-days visa (either 'extension of RP', L or S2 visa).----- 'Chinese law'
When you arrive to the new job site, your new employer will have 30 days to extend your RP, and you don't need to exit China.
You must have Release letter and Cancelation of FEC certificate from present employer. If you complete the Contract, your employer is required to submit this two docs. to you or your new employer in 30-days after your last working day.----'Chinese law'
With this 2 docs. your new employer will be able to extend your RP. As soon as your new employer extend your present RP, you'll be able to travel out of China, and return. You must wait for RP extension, before you can exit China/travel home.
