Don't only look at which one is easier to open a bank account, look also at the services they offer.

For me, all the local Chinese banks (Bank of China, Bank of Communication, etc), they have really poor services.

I would advise you the China Merchant Bank.

Don't choose Bank of China. They suck big time. ICBC is slightly better and they usually have more counters open which means slightly less waiting times. But in general, Chinese banks leave a lot to be desired, to put it mildly.

I had China Merchant in Qingdao and its wire transfer service was really good. I have ICBC now which is slightly more of a hassle but there are many more ICBC locations in Beijing than China Merchant, so yeah. 

 

I once heard that ICBC has more branches than any other bank in Beijing. Not sure if that is true though.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
