Hong Kong Dollar Exchange Rate


Go bonkers in Honkers!

Heading to Hong Kong for your next trip?

Whether you plan to tram it up to the top of Victoria Peak, take in the sights and smells of Temple Street Night Market, visit the Giant Buddha on Lantau Island or indulge in a night of Cantonese opera, tango or karaoke - you're going to need some Hong Kong dollars ready to go.  

Luckily, at Travel Money NZ we can offer you great rates on your NZD to HKD exchange.

The Hong Kong dollar is the official currency of Hong Kong, but it is also used in Macau as the two regions are close to each other and have currencies that have similar exchange rates.

The dollar is broken into 100 cents, or sin in Cantonese.

The amount of 10 cents is called 1 houh in Cantonese, but a common English term for the HKD - especially for Western expats living in Hong Kong - is "honkie".
