There are definetely some interesting temples to visit in Fujian province. I personally find Nanputuo temple in Xiamen very interesting. It is really big and have a very distinctive colourful style that is typical of Fujian. As far as i know this is the most famous and biggest temple in all of Fujian.

you have the adress here:

515 Siming Nanlu, Siming District, Xiamen
厦门市思明区思明南路515号

Cheers!

There are some very amazing and beautiful old temples are there in Fujian province. The Buddhist temple is one of the best temple. The Main Hall of the Hualin Temple is also very famous. Along with that Temple of Matsu, Temple of Guan Gong, Temple of Guan Gong are some temples that you can visit in Fujian province.

There is an absolutely gorgeous temple complex up a mountain near Fuzhou, I will try to find the name of that place and some information about it and get back to you.

Those temples in Fujian such as the Temple of Matsu and Temple of Guan Gong I have heard many great stories of that place. You can take a look at some websites and read reviews if you have never been. I haven't been to all of them but the one's that I have they were well worth it. The temples in China are so peaceful....frown

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
