As you have already known, banks in China offer better currency exchange rates than change offices.

If you don’t mind filling up some forms and waiting for your turn to engage service, check out branches of major banks like Bank of China, China Merchants Bank, Bank of Shanghai, and Industrial & Commercial Bank of China (ICBC).

These banks have their foreign exchange counters in the vicinity of some of the most visited destinations in town including Nanjing Road, The Bund and People’s Square.

Don’t forget to bring your passport or a valid ID along.
