Open up Lloyds TSB offshore account. You can have a Dollar account, Sterling account, Euro and Yen.
let me know your purpose. And i believe you are flying there,..
As per my experience, LLoyds TSB is a good bank. Good for expats infact..In case you need a loan or credit card. They have less criteria and they give more credit limit as well. .
Other choices are RBS or Barclays
