Q: Is Hong Kong known for any scams?

Possibly because of being under British rule for so long, it seems like the kind of place where scams aren't tolerated. Has anyone had any experience of being scammed in Honkers?

On the streets you will find many "Indians/ Pakistanis" trying to sell you fake watches.

Its a popular place for people to exit the country to get new visas and official paperwork ect. However that means there are a lot of people selling boot leg paperwork of varying quality. If that is what you are looking for, then great. But you can also wind up unintentionally buying visas that aren't real.

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
