Opening a bank account as a 'tourist'

Good Day Everyone,

I'll be staying somewhat long-term in Saigon and am hoping to open a bank account. However, I'm here on a tourist visa and not currently employed. I have an HSBC account in Canada and had hoped I could simply open an additional account here. I went this morning and was denied: no bank accounts for tourists.

Has anyone had any luck opening an account as a 'tourist'...?
