Q: Do people need permits to sell on the streets in Beijing, China?

I have seen many times small business owners pack up and run away when they see a cop. Does anybody know if you need a permit to sell or work on the streets in Beijing, China. I see two types of small business owners: the one's that run when they see something they don't like and the one's that stay and keep trying to sell. 

Does anybody know if you need a permit to sell on the streets? If you do is it hard to get a permit and how much would it cost? Do the small business owners get to choose their space?

I know in America you have to have a permit plus you have to pay for the space that you occupy. Basically if the space is unavailable for you to sell you have to look elsewhere. What's the rule in Beijing China about selling on the streets?

They probably need one according to the law, but the law isn't enforced. The cops coming around is just for show. The stands will be up and running again within the next day, no problem.

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
