Might be worthwhile to consider the Euro. Also they will sell you HK$ in India too.
Only thing is if you have USD or Euro left over, you can use it everywhere with good exchange rates.

Might help to talk to local Travel shops.
For some currencies, they would sell at decent rates and would buy back leftovers once you return.

IMO, it makes sense to save that currency for your next visit. Maybe it makes sense only for frequent travellers.

Shopping in Hong Kong , suggestions
I am going to Hong Kong starting the 14th of August for around 5 days.
Though i would not be having much time for shopping.
I would like to know, what are some good places for shopping in Hong Kong.
Anything that is not easily available in India or something unique to Hong Kong.
Also some electronic items which are easy to carry or something for the car.
Thanks in advance.

@abhinav.gupta- Electronics are definitely cheaper in HK. I bought a digicam from there. Try the shopping centre at Kowloon side (forget the name- but next to Star Ferry)- they're interconnected from inside. Harbour Centre I think. Insist on a bill/ deals/ guarantee.
And I know that branded clothes are easily available here, but you don't get the range and the fabulous price/ offers they have. So try Bossini, Giordano etc throughout HK.
On the Central side, go to IFC mall. Nothing "unique" about it, but again, good stuff.
Of course, I'm saying all this from a girl's POV, so you may not entirely agree. But yes, buying electronics (like digicam, ipod etc) from there is TOTALLY worth it.

Re: advice for shopping in Hong Kong
Its a 2 year old thread.
I am visiting HK next week. I plan to buy a Nintendo WII and a few more electronic items like a camera and a projector(for home viewing) if possible.
Can any of you give me some input on what make/models to look out for?
Wifey wants a small camera for her purse so shortlisted Canon IXUS 220.
What to look for in a Projector?
