Travel: China - Hong Kong

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Hihi... I am travelling to HK, Macau and then to Zuhai. May I know if I need to bring HKD, MOP & RMB with me.
So sorry, very blur here. Even travel insurance is so complex... I have decided to buy just one place, HK, is it safe?

Thanks for helping out this blur sotong here. :sweat:

You can bring along all three different types of currencies or you can just stick to HKD. HKD is widely accepted in all these places but exchange rate may not be that favorable. However, given the convenience, it’s only a small price to pay. Most of the time, you can just stick to plastic and reduce the amount of cash you need.

Also, you can’t buy only one place for travel insurance. You may void the terms of the insurance, resulting in rejected claim. Best to buy a plan that covers both HK and CN.

Correction: “can’t buy”

I love HK! Hong Kong is a shopping paradise! It has mouthwatering international cuisine. My Favorite part is the highly developed transportation network. It is very convenient to travel to and from HK.

Is Hong Kong still packed with tourists from mainland China?

May be easier to ask where in the end is not packed with tourists from mainland China.

don't known about Taipei, but there were few mainland China tourists in rest of Taiwan, much much much less than what we encountered when we were there 2 years ago.

That’s due to the green camp in power from 2016. Expect that to change when the blue camp wins Taiwan presidential election in 2020.
