Q: Which bank in Beijing allows you to withdraw money from a PLUS atm card?

Oh well, I am holding this EasiCard from OCBC Bank that does not even have a Cirrus sign, only the PLUS sign. Any idea where can I get my money out from the stupid card?

In China, UNION PAY is the one used.  Normally, Union Pay does have reciprocal agreements with others like Cirrus, Plus, Master, Visa, etc, so your card should work .

Start visiting ATM's from different banks to see if your card works on one. Your real problem may come in when asked for the PIN number, in China is six digits, abroad is only 4. So, input your PIN as 00XXXX. The X are your PIN numbers. Some banks, like Bank of China, the ATM will accept a 4 digit PIN number

Last thing, be aware that many local ATM's, after three failures at providing the correct PIN number, will not return your card, so only try twice per machine visited, and after second try remove card from machine

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
