Hong Kong Trip Tips

  • Hong Kong uses the Hong Kong dollar. There are roughly 8 to the Euro, or 10 to the British pound.
  • The emergency telephone number is 999 and the international dialling code is +852.
  • Hong Kong uses the British 3 square plug power sockets. Until 1997 it was a British colony so English is still an official language there.
  • As an important trading and banking centre, Hong Kong is one of the money laundering capitals of the world, helping drug lords, politicians and oil sheikhs stay incredibly rich, and their tax bills stay incredibly low.  Not a trip tip, just an interesting fact.
  • Although largely seen as a sprawling city of skyscrapers, Hong Kong also has some stunning sandy beaches.
