Q: Does it ever rain In Beijing, or is it always sunny windy with a chance of SMOG?

I have been here for a month now as of today and have yet to see it rain. The only thing I have see remotely close to it is the smog. Some days its so bad that walking through the streets, I get crap in my eyes. Other days its Just so hazy you cant see the sun. My friend says it snows here, but I not sure. I asked her if it was just a thick layer of pollution, but she assures me it snows here. Is it true? Does it rain and snow here ?

it does rain in Beijing. Mostly thunderstorms - if i remember correctly. But there is little wind and rain. Mostly sun and smog. Good luck with that

You must be naive.  Beijing weather and pollution are world famous.  One month ago the pollution level was right off the charts

It will definitely snow this winter, although this winter is MUCH warmer than last winter. Last year we had snow in November, now it's december already and we've only had two days cold enough for snow. And in terms of pollution, I think it's been beter this year too. They must be doing something right, Yes, we still have bad days but last January we had record highs almost every week. So I think we should appreciate what we have right now because if history repeats it's going to get a helluva lot colder!

You can easily go a month or two without rain here.  It's nice because it really lets the smog build.  We will get snow because around January time it'll be plenty cold enough but it might not settle - winter is usually freezing winds with dried spit on the pavements.

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
