Hong Kong Money

Bee Wise: New Button, New Schedule
It's time for Bee Wise! This is our Saturday meme where we share anything we learned or discover during the week (or the past many weeks!). Come and join us, and we are eager to visit your site and learn from you. 

One thing that a traveler needs to do first when traveling to another country is to know the currency exchange rate in that country. One also needs to familiarize how each note or coin looks like. So in case you plan to travel to Hong Kong for the first time, here are some of its latest bank notes:

It's interesting to see different designs of the same amount. So don't get confused.

I am told that different banks have their own bills.

The Lion's head design is the most common.
Did you notice the size? The bigger the size, the higher the amount.

Of all the 7 countries I've been, Hong Kong has the most colorful money, and the crispiest, too. They always look like fresh from the bank!

It's a good idea to keep at least one bill for souvenir!

We want to learn from you. Just write a post about anything you think worth knowing/learning and come back here to leave your link.
