Q: Has anyone here been to Beidaihe? What was it like?

Have been reading up on a few beach locations on the net. Has anyone visited Beidaihe in North China. Aparently it used to be the weekend getaway location for high level party officials. Are ther reasonable hotels there that anyone would recommend. Will it still be Ok to visit in the colder weather, obviously I wont be swimming at that time of year but would love to just relax by the ocean and eat some nice seafood. Have read there are some nice sections of the Great Wall nearby as well with a lot less tourists than Badaling and the other places nearer to Beijing.

It is okay, not much to do, you can visit Qinhuangdao while you were there, it's another small city just on the outskirt of Beidaihe and they have the Eastern starting point of Great Wall.

It's pretty because it's on the coast. In warm months it's swamped with Russians. Part of the city is actually like a small Russian village. It's kind of weird.

I've heard that it's not bad but you have to choose your visit carefully in order to avoid the crushing hordes of holiday makers. It's supposed to be much milder and pleasant than Beijing so many people go there for weekend trips from Beijing to escape the heat. I have yet to go but have always been curious.

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
