I've used Agoda quite a few times, for hotels & hostels. Never had a problem. 

 

Not iused Airbnb yet in China though I've used it in Europe a lot the last couple of years. Up to now always had a good experience

I've used Airbnb and it was great, paid with Alipay and saved a lot in Sanya, Hainan, China.  Sanya doesn't allow expats to stay in cheap hotels, so they tried to force me to stay in a Hotel that is 5 stars for 3800 RMB for 2 nights only.

i used airbnb and once the police came and I had to leave because the apartment was not legally registered for business.

I am pretty sure most apartments in PRC are not and this can happen. Guess a neighbour was pissed and called the police...

Enjoyed a weekend in Beijing recently using AirBnb. A pleasant experience, albeit pricier than staying in a hostel.

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
