Q: Can I go swimming if I have tattoos?

I've heard that in some parts of Asia - notably Japan - people with tattoos are denied access to public swimming pools. Does this rule exist in Beijing, and if so, where? (I like swimming, but I have tattoos!)

You certainly can. I have tried and tested. Lot's of people will stare but suprisingly enough people like tattoos in China and they are always saying WOW.

Yes. Of course. If you arent sure, head over to the pool and check out all the other tattooed people.

I like a snowy Happy new year, rather than a no sky one...Beijing's time to ban the cars---the only solution for the time being...

Of course! I didn't even know it was a problem in some parts of the world. Never had this issue in China though. The only problem i had was to give blood, they refused my blood because i had a tattoo the first time, not the second... strange!!

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
