In addition to staying in luxury wine, eating authentic food, there is another item that tourists must punch - shopping. Although Macao is small, there are many shopping places, such as Big shopping, Parisian shopping, four seasons famous products, Big three Ba Shishou Street and so on... How do I pay for shopping in Macau? I believe this is the question of most friends, the following Xiaobian will tell you in detail about the Macao payment method, so that you have a perfect shopping experience.
There are three different currencies in circulation in Macau, namely MOP (MOP$), RMB (HK$) and Hong Kong Dollar (HK$). There are six denominations of Macanese banknotes, namely $10, $20, $50, $100, $500 and $1000; There are seven kinds of coins, namely 1, 2, 5, 1, 2, 5 and 10 yuan. The denomination of the Hong Kong dollar note is the same as that of the Australian dollar, and there are six types of coins, namely 5 cents, 10 cents, 50 cents, 1 dollar, 2 dollars, and 5 dollars.
There is a certain gap between the exchange rates of Patacas, Hong Kong dollars and RMB, as of today 1 RMB (CNY) ≈1.1286 Patacas (MOP), 1 RMB (CNY) ≈1.0964 Hong Kong dollars (HK). In the case of no exchange of Australian currency, you can use Hong Kong dollar or RMB payment, but the exchange rate is 1:1:1, so if you have more consumption, you can consider exchanging Australian currency. Note: General city banks can not exchange Macao currency, can only exchange Hong Kong dollars, it is recommended to exchange in Macao, in the major ports around the exchange will have!!
In addition to the direct use of RMB, MOP, Hong Kong dollar payment in Macao shopping, you can also use UnionPay card, shopping in Hong Kong and Macao is more cost-effective, directly according to the local currency payment, repayment according to the exchange rate of RMB, simple and convenient. Of course, most merchants in Macau support and pay, but the settlement will be settled at the Hong Kong dollar exchange rate on the day, so it is recommended to pay by bank card, which is relatively cost-effective. Note: According to the customs regulations, the amount of RMB carried on the customs shall not exceed 20,000 yuan, and the amount of US $shall not exceed 5,000, and the excess shall be declared. (Usually not, but don't go overboard).
