I am not sure they have an English interface, so make sure they explain everything to you and you take photos. Also, you might need to take a USB card reader with you to use the system later.

you haven't banked in China before than.... OMG
Found banking in China to be a breeze compared to Taiwan, account opening, credit card, all with no hassle what so ever. When I was living there I also opened an overseas HSBC account in HongKong which took about 15 mins. I opened a Taiwan HSBC account last week in order to transfer fee free to HongKong, the first visit no one there was able to open an account, after complaining on their website I was allocated an appointment to start the process, second visit took approximately 30mins including having my photograph taken, had to make a third appoint which lasted just over an hour, account should be approved in 7 days and I then have to visit the branch again to activate the account...this was for an HSBC premier account, have no idea how long a standard account would take!
Yeah you're in HK. When I say China, I mean everywhere else.
