Q: Friends and family who came to China - did they hate or love China?

Did the people who came to see you here love or hate their experience?

 

My family was happy to spend 10 days here, but somewhat digusted by how dirty it was. Some friends came, were super happy to see things, but even happier to go back home.

 Well my mother's coming to see my new baby boy soon, and i'm certain she's going to fit right in here; just like a square peg in one of those round holes.

I think most of my family would not like it here for the most part. However, some of my friends would like it, but would probably be happy to leave too. Depends where you come from I guess, and where you visit while here.

It would depend on where you live... where you will take them etc..

 

eg: if u r living in shanghai posh westernised area .. they would love it

 

if u take them for site seeing... choose nice roads.. every one is amazed with the vast expressway network (dont take them thru busy ones)

 

finally if you are driving them around and going only to 5A attaractions.. its jst a gr8 country...

Before my parents came my dad didn't care too much about China and my mum was excited about it...  After the trip my mum couldn't wait to leave but my dad ended up loving it.  Besides my dad smacking a guy on Nanjing road who grabbed my mum they experience no problems.

 

He loved how cheap things were and how he was treated.  My mum's impression of China (okay we were in Shanghai for most of it) wasn't what she had hoped for but I had warned her.  But she will give it another chance now I live so close to Hong Kong.

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
