Bring a gas mask. No kidding. In the past 2 months there have been warnings to stay indoors on my cell phone.  I trust you are in good shape if you plan to live there for a year.

I  worked there last year for a full academic term. There are some good places to go for entertainment and food.  Both Chinese and western.  There are a large number of foreigners, both western and Asian.

the downside will come depending on which your location; in the inner ring road, or in the countryside. Do not try to take a taxi during rush hour. You will have to haggle. SJZ has a Walmart and a Carrefour. The cost of living is less than most capital cities in China.

Pros: Cost of living is low. Some decent bars and Western restaurants.

Cons: Pollution, grey skies, too cold in winter, too hot in summer.

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
