Is it Nathan road (Mirrador mansion) or somewher else?
I'm looking for the best rate to sell RMB/buy HKD.
Patel's in Chungking Mansions. these guys are reliable and their rates seem to be the best. They are on the right as you enter the mansions. There's a guy called Henry working there who is very helpful.

The worse you can do there is have to wait if the day happens to be a hot currency market but there are no fees, no problems and you want to make sure you get a good rate.
Take your passport if it is a large sum of money - I can't recall what sum requires that.
Best rate rmb/hkd i have been able to find is upstairs on first floor of the mall on Sugar st Causeway Bay opposite lok sing centre
they advertise the rate on a sign board at the bottom of the stairs
be careful the other numerous agencies in cwb -they are almost always crap rates
the sugar street mall changer has always given me a better rate than even the smaller changers in shenzen
I just remembered that HKTraveller had done this rate comparison last Feb when someone wanted similar information. This was rates on Feb 22, 2008: http://www.geoexpat.com/forum/thread30197-2.html
Since comparison is only possible at the same time, here a result:
Berlin Exchange Tel. 2523 3403
USD buy: 7.7930 sell: 7.8080
RMB buy: 1.136364 sell: 1.144165
HSBC premier (electronic transfer rate, not cash)
USD buy: 7.7925 sell: 7.8185
RMB buy: 1.1375 sell: 1.1550 (rounded)
HSBC China (electronic transfer rate, not cash)
RMB buy: 1.138434 sell: 1.147578
China Foreign Exchange 1/F, Chungking Mansion, Tel. 2316 2611
USD buy: 7.787 sell 7.80
RMB buy: 1.137 sell: 1.145
Pacific Exchange, 1/F Chungking Mansion, Tel. 2724 4980
USD buy: 7.785 sell 7.81
RMB buy: 1.135 sell: 1.145475
Do not change at Chungking ground floor, expecially not at the first shops when you come in, and do not change during non banking hours if avoidable, since the spread is bigger then.

Whats the rate that the offer for USD travellers cheque
you can get some good rates if you go inside the world wide centre in central, then go up the esculators to the shopping mall
I have called Berlin and they say HK$ 1,000 buy me Korean Won 157,700
Yahoo converter says around 140,000
and my bank says 130,000
How can that be ?
What's a good rate these days, any Korean here ?
