Q: Do other cities have as many walls and fences as Beijing?

I like living in Beijing, but it really bums me out that there are 10 foot tall walls all over the place. When I'm walking somewhere, its like there is no scenery to look at. It also bugs me that there are fences everywhere, so that if you want to, say, walk into a university or community, you cannot simply cross the street and go in, you have to find one of a limited number of gated entrances. My question is, are all Chinese cities like this, or is this something unique to Beijing?

No Chinese city I was before has walls. Some fences......yes! But, no walls.

Tangshan, Harbin, Jiamusi, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Jixian, Yingkou, and now I am in Dalian, and there are no walls anywhere around.

While I walk, I can get to mostly 'natural' obstacles as highways, bridges, but no walls.

 

There is fence at my apartment building. I live in one of the 4 apartment building with 30 floors each. There is fence around all 4 buildings, with two entrance doors.

Here in Zhuhai almost everything has a wall and a guard in a small "phonebooth" The walls around our community has cameras, motion sensors and shards of glass sticking up from the top of the walls. There is golf carts with guards driving the outer perimeter and guards walking inside at any time of day (the golf cart guards do also seem to go on a lot of baozi runs too Smile

 

From my apartment I have an excellent view of a couple of construction areas, the walls go up last.

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
