That's the first city I've been to when I came here.  Its filthy because the major product of the city or maybe the whole province is coal.  Local people look at you from head to toe and follow you then gossip.  Its cold there and most foreigners were black and filipinos.  Most people dont speak English only students can speak English.

Don't go there... it's like living in Mordor from the Lord of the Rings. 

 

It is on my Top 3 worst cities in China, at the top of the list. 

 

Number two is: Zhengzhou, Henan

 

You will regret it... wait... this post is 8 weeks old... I bet you are already regretting it.

I was there on business 2 years past, couldn't  drag me out of the airport, it was minus 20c outside. After an hour  eventually made it to the taxi, arrived at the hotel and refused to leave there. 3 days later left. Polar bear world this time of year.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
