1. Avoid currency exchange kiosks at airports

Due to high overheads and a captive market, airport money changers usually offer higher rates than other foreign currency providers. Although they are convenient, you can save more money by going to any money changers outside of the airport before your flight.

Only the People’s Republic of China (PRC) has used the Chinese yuan as its official currency since 1949. However, the Chinese yuan is also used in Hong Kong, Macau, Myanmar, and Taiwan.

Hong Kong

Renminbi or yuan may be accepted as payment in Hong Kong’s main grocery chains, however, the exchange rate is low, with a 20% loss against Hong Kong dollars. Businesses that accept yuan will show a notice at their cash register or in their storefront window.


From casinos to eateries, the Hong Kong dollar and Chinese yuan are widely accepted across Macau. Government agencies can accept both Hong Kong dollars and patacas as payment.


Myanmar authorised the Chinese yuan’s use in official settlements for border trade with China last December 2021.
