Yes, just go to any bank with your passport and the address of where you are currently living. They will open an account for you.

Also, bring a Chinese speaker with you.
Even though Shanghai is quite international, there is no guarantee you will be dealing with someone who can speak a language other than Chinese: you want to be sure of what you are getting.

Sure, you can open an account in big banks in China.  I found a detailed guide. Hope it helps.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
