Go Bonkers in Honkers
Heading to Hong Kong for a holiday? Pack your walking shoes, prepare your taste buds, exchange some Aussie Dollars to Hong Kong Dollars, and prepare for the trip of a lifetime.
Take the tram to the top of Victoria Peak and enjoy stunning views. Meet the Big Buddha on Lantau Island. Then, as the sun sets on this glorious city, immerse yourself in the sights (and the smells!) of the Temple Street Night Market, sing your heart out with some karaoke, or tap your toes to some tango music. The options are endless in this colourful metropolis – and the Hong Kong dollar (or the ‘honkie’ as some Western expats call it) is the key you need to unlock it all.
If you’re planning a detour through the neighbouring region of Macau, good news: the Hong Kong dollar is also commonly accepted here (along with the Macanese pataca). You’ll need some yuan if you’re headed elsewhere in China, though.
