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.
We get it, doing your holiday budget is a snore fest. It's important though, so we've made it super easy for you to do now. Just punch in your holiday deets and we'll combine destination spend data with our exchange rates so you know how much to take. Easy peasy budget donesy!
Just like other dollars, the Hong Kong dollar ($) is divided into 100 cents (c) or 100 sin (in Cantonese). Coins come in 10c, 20c, 50c, $1, $2, $5 and $10 varieties, while Hong Kong banknotes can be found in $10, $20, $50, $100, $150, $500 and $1,000 denominations. Hong Kong also has a special term, hou, for a dime (10 cents).
The historical rates chart above shows how today’s exchange rate compares to what it's been in the past. If you’d prefer to wait for the Hong Kong dollar to hit a certain rate, we’ve got just the thing: sign up for currency alerts and we’ll email you when the magic number comes up.
