Q: Anyone know of any romantic weekend getaways from Beijing?

Obviously for Valentine's Day. I'm on a budget of max. 1000 rmb per person. If anyone knows of any resorts, spas, hotels, nature spots etc. worth taking your loved one for that price range, please let me know!

Here's a novel idea, rent a house in the outskirts...there's lots of them! For just a weekend (and the weather will still be too cold for long excursions outdoors) you can have the run of a whole house. Maybe you can find one with a fireplace (pure romanticism) and the peace and quiet means you'll be able to actually talk and enjoy yourselves. 

Back in the old, old, old days, foreigners used to be able to rent small accommodations at Ba Da Qiu (the temple on the western outskirts of Beijing) but those days are long gone (certainly for the budget you have in mind).

Or, figure out the longest distance you can travel together in a soft sleeper and take a train ride. See what you've never seen, together!

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
