I'm confused.
Please can someone tell me the best way to take money to Hong Kong. I'm going in two weeks time.
Is there a way of doing it without taking wads of cash, or being charged % per transaction?
thanks.

No. You always get charged commission when you are abroad, either explicitly or in the exchange rate. The trick is to get the commission as low as possible.

Agree with Special.
It will be cheaper if you can make a cash withdrawal from a branch of your own bank in HK. Also check the charge for using your credit card overseas - my pils use a post office visa card as it has low charges. Probably too late to get a new visa card now, but may be useful for the future.
