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:Most meaningful stuff is when I teach. There's little room for cultural learning and science, but I sneak it in anyway. I'll ask questions to the class, which I later answer correctly: What happens when you cook milk? Why should we shake hands with the right hand? Why do we like fatty, sweet and other unhealthy foods so much? Why are kuaizi called chopsticks in English? Why do animals hunt at night? If you take a bite of an onion and don't like it, does that mean you don't like onions? Why?

Why-questions give a mixed reacton in the classroom. Most kids have been conditioned to hate questions without easy rote-learned answers, but once the kids are used to it, some get enthusiastic. They realize they can satisfy their playful exploration by thinking and asking questions, not only by gratifying strokes and narcissistic supply. -- coineineagh
