Well i also suggest not to go for HSBC. Their staff is not as professional + you don't feel at home there at all.

I like the idea of feeling at 'home' with a bank. I want somewhere I can get paid and take money out. That's it, I don't want to sit and watch TV with them.

My salary account is HSBC and my saving account is ADCB. I do use credit cards from both banks. Both banks are fine imho.

However, if your salary is below 50k. The ADCB Privilege account (minimum salary 30K) is a bit better than HSBC's Advance account (minimum salary 15K). If your salary is 50K+ then you get a premier account in HSBC and you get to stay Premier elsewhere in the world, which is a good advantage.

I'd go for ADCB for a salary less than 50k and HSBC for a 50k+ salary.
