Q: Anyone else in Xiamen?

Xiamen is a cool city by Chinese standards, even kiteboarding... If you are then lets hangout, Me and the wife run a Hostel here and we hold Chinese and English corners here every week...

5-7: edited my question to stop the trolls who like picking on the details of a question

There is no one in Xiamen. It is a ghost town.

Xiamen is an amazing place - probably the best place I've seen in China so far. I think as far as living conditions go, it'd be hard to beat. But it is also try that it doesn't have half the job opportunities the big cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen have, unless you teach. It's got a few foreign firms, but otherwise it's quite limited.

Which is a shame...the beach, a beautiful island across, a very vibrant city and amazing weather for most of the year. Oh and...seafood?

3.5 million people. I went there for close to 3 weeks and met lots of foreigners.

Stop trolling, Martin.

I spent one week there last year. The beach is my favourite. I love the sunset.

Hi, I'm in Xiamen for the 4th-5th time now. I kind of like it here, but I wouldn't call it the best city in China... My favorite is still Hangzhou.
Xiamen is probably simply too hot for me...

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
