More regarding ICBC. They have pretty good English service on their phone service.  Dial 95588 and choose English. when someone comes von ask them your questions. The3y can probably guide you. And if you tell them your location, they can probably point you to the branch nearest to you that has forex services.

Turns out Agricultural Bank of China can exchange and remit money pretty easily too. They even know about the formal procedure for employed foreigners exchanging and transferring money in their own name. (I however don't know about that procedure. I now know the main branch of ABC in this burg can do it, but I don't know what's needed to make it happen.)
There is little in history to support the proposition that China was indeed the centre of the Asian universe commanding deference among less civilised states around its periphery...

It's getting easier.  Most of the big banks can do wires.  Ag Bank and Postal Savings Bank can do Western Union.

Also, Chinese bank cards seem to work ok at ATMs in many countries.
