Q: Are there any scenic places around Shanghai that won't be mobbed with tourists over the Oct hol?

Want to go a day trip somewhere over the October break but don't want to go anywhere with too many people. Zhujiajiao is basically out of the question even though it's a pretty water town and I'd really like to go there; just not this October. Anywayyyyy....if any of you have any recommendations for pretty places within easy reach of Shanghai that won't crazy and overpopulated, let me now. heart

I'd say NO.

 

The National day holiday is the vacation holiday for Chinese whereas Spring Festival is visiting family holiday.

 

You're best bet would be to travel outside of China during this holiday to somewhere like Vietnam or Thailand. Take some time off during another part of the year to travel in China.

 

If you do risk going now it's less of it being overcrowded and more about it being able to get there or not, last year some roads had traffic jams that lasted well over 6hrs without traffic even moving!

No. The spare-time starved Chinese people exploit anything that looks like an opportunity to get out of the factory.

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
