As one of the financial hubs of China, Dalian has plenty of banks located throughout the city. Some of them include: Bank of China, Construction Bank of China, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, Agricultural bank, Communication Bank of China, Pufa Bank, and Dalian Commercial Bank.The banks provide convenient banking services such as savings, withdrawals, and exchanges.Also, plenty of self-service ATM machines can be found.Visitors should check home bank about the various transaction fees that may be charged for cash withdrawals.The self-service system can be used by major credit cards, such as Master Card, Visa, and American Express.
Calling cards (known as IP cards) are plentiful and offer the cheapest way of calling overseas.Be aware, however, that not all cards offer English instructions, so it would be best to stick with the two main brands (China Netcom and China Telecom).They can be found in most in post offices and phone shops.
Travelers may or may not be able to use their mobile phone for international calls, but this may require buying a local SIM card.However, only using a SIM card can be very expensive, so we recommend using both a SIM card and an IP card together for international calls.
Other good places to go for international calls are the phone bars, which are generally found around university areas.To make a call, simply walk in and choose a vacant phone.
Post offices are scattered throughout the whole city, and there is one located next to the main train station as well as a 24hr telecoms office next door.Larger post offices in the city offer international services, such as Western Union wiring facilities.There are the two main branches located just east of the railway station and on Zhongshan Square.
