United Family Hospital is specifically geared towards expats in Beijing and is staffed by an international team of doctors and bilingual nurses. While it may be expat friendly, it sure isn't friendly on your wallet. The last time I checked how much an appointment to see a doctor was it cost 1200 RMB a pop - ouch if you don't have health insurance. The hospital is located on Jiangtai Lu in the Lido area so is a bit of a trek if you don't live in that area.

Other international hospitals include Am-Care, which is just up the road from United Family and targetting women and children. I've had a friend who gave birth there and she wasn't overly impressed. Her main issue was the fact that there was a complete lack of privacy.

For the more budget-conscious, try Tongren Hospital by Chongwenmen Subway station. While you may need to go with a Chinese friend, the hospital is considered one of the best in Beijing, especially its ENT services. They also do have some bilingual staff but don't count on it for all services.

Then there's also the SOS clinic - the beauty of this one is that it is open 24 hours and they have various language services. They do emergency house calls and offer a full spectrum of services.

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
