You can buy but not legally in most cases. To purchase legally, I am pretty sure that if you have resided in China for a number of years (2-3?) then you can prove residence and buy a property. I think there is an increase in tax that you have to pay as well.

From what I understood, you can buy your own place, but can't own it forever, after 5 years the government buys it back, and you have to find another place. Unless you're married with a local.

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
