Union Pay ATM card in SE Asia?
24th July, 2011
I am currently living and working in China, and I'll be heading off on a four-month trip around Laos, Vietnam, Nepal and India soon. I have a Bank of China ATM card that I can't use outside China, but I've heard that Union Pay is accepted in other countries. Can anyone tell me if they have used a Union Pay card in Laos, Vietnam, Nepal or India? I will be travelling to these countries in a couple of months and I need to know if I can access my funds...
If not, can anyone suggest the best way I can travel with the money I've been painstakingly saving for the last six months??

No personal experience - but a friend used his Union Pay (Agricultural Bank of China) to get funds out of an ATM in Saigon. I've had it work in BKK before, but saw no Union Pay signs when I was in Southern Laos this last time.
