The lowest exchange rate is called 'Spot rate'. That is Central Bank's rate and all other Banks add their managing fees and exchange it at the higher rate.

 

China Merchant Bank used to use 'spot EX rate' at conversion of all purchases completed abroad (to Gold account's funds), so I use to travel around with just little cash currency and made most of the purchases abroad by using CMB's Visa/Mc ATM card.

I even handed ATM card to my family members, who would always return cash after they made purchases with my card.

That was the best EX rate possible! angel

 

How to spot better/cheaper EX rate?

You should stare into RMB/USD chart day and night ... he he!

I switched my pay to dollars 3 years ago on my contracts. Reading the tea leaves is the best way to avoid working for free.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
