there are no rules in China, I think its the new Wild West, the Chinese are all outlaws. On city buses no bikes, can barely get on and sumtimes not at all, hiway buses would probably take anyting you got, even yo momma

It depends on the mood of the guards on the day you travel.

Sometimes the guy who happily waves you by for weeks on end, will suddenly decide to tear you a new one.

They hardly have the room to fit anymore people on the bus let alone a bicycle. Although in Shanghai, I saw a bus that you could put them on a rack in the back of the bus.

Jiliu

I understand what your are asking and why

we have a similar system here where you put up to 4 bikes up on the front of a bus.

But China is nothing that you are trying to imagine.

before you come to China

You need to set up a place to to stay

read the packing suggestions we posted the other day

and keep an open mind .

when you leave the airport take a deep breath 

second thought don't do that the pollution will kill you.

take a moment to get your thoughts then

try not to talk for a few hours just let your mind absorb the new planet you have come to

please make sure that you have some one you can stay with that can give you some guidance .

Even I had some help the first time I went to China and I have been to some very different places in my life.

Take care

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
