Q: How can I find painter and decorators in Beijing? And how much?

Firstly, how do I go about finding someone to paint my flat for me? And how much does such a service roughly cost?

As far as I am aware there are no painters or decorators in China. Nor are there any electricians or plumbers.

Normally it is just someone who owns a roller ,a wrench or a screwdriver. Be careful because what I really mean to say is that they are not professionals. If they paint a wall they will paint the ceiling, floor, light switches, plug sockets, door frames and even you if you are in the way.

The wall will be covered with paint (not evenly) but you will have a clean up job that will take you weeks if the paint has dried.

Go anywhere and check out the paint job, restaurants, schools, etc. You will see I am right.

goldenboy said parts of right. most paintesr you find on the street are unprofessional. you never konw how skill he has unless he painted you house. so if you want paint room only , i suggest you go to the paint shop , buy paint and told your problem to owner, let them recommend some veterans to you.
if you want decorate you house ,you should find a decoration company, make a contract with this company, let them help you find good painter,plumber or electricians. that maybe spend more money but still convenience to you. Smile

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
