Use RMB in Hong Kong and Macao
The 100 Yuan is widely accepted in Hong Kong, however smaller dominations such as the 10 Yuan and 20 Yuan are not so popular. Usually, you pay them in RMB; merchants will give you change in Hong Kong Dollar. Note that the exchange rate is not as good as on mainland.

Visa, Master Card, American Express, Dinerís Club, Federal Card, Million Card, and JCB credit cards are accepted at most hotels and state run shops in major cities. Travelers should be prepared to pay in Yuan when shopping in smaller shops, at restaurants, and in smaller hotels.
