Dear Mike,

 

Dalian is really great.  It's one of the more mellow places in China.  It's got about the same range of restaurants and activities as Beijing but on a much smaller scale.  It's all there.

 

It's large but overwhelming and IMHO the city fathers have done a good job with a semblance of beauty about the place.

 

That being said, in winter, it can be brutally cold and the temperature these days has not been particularly clement.

 

If you're a Canuck, you are probably used to those kind of temperatures, but I surely am not.  Today it was - 8 C. or something like that.

 

Look here, please kind Mike, for about all the answers that you will need

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
