As long as your debit card has a visa / mastercard logo, or whatever other options they accept it shouldn't make a difference if it's a debit or credit card.

Yep. I've done it myself before. 

 

Only thing is, you'll have to decide on which currency to use. Think it's based on the currency of your national bank holder and China's one.

When I was regularly buying tickets, I could only use my debit card (Union Pay, not Visa/MC) at the CTrip office...credit cards were only an option for ticket delivery.

Weird thing is: last year I tried to buy a ticket with my unionpay debit card but I failed, they told me tickets at ctrip.can only be bought by credit card...it was such a hassle then I got a credit card and bought a ticket and within a few hours I received text message saying my credit card had been compromised...so im wondering if ctrip is a scam?

I think it's a scam now. Plus it's too much hassle. For tickets in China we check on the internet then just go to an office where you can buy plane tickets.  Cripple is a huge scam now.

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
