this is why I automatically have my salary directly deposited to my bank in my home country. No fuss, no worries.

There are limits on how much a foreigner can send out or bring into China.  The easiest way is to give your money to a local that you trust.  They do not have limits on how much they can transfer out.

Otherwise, you can save all of your paycheck stubs and bring them to the Beaurea of Currency and they will give you a waiver to export that much money.

dont try to sneak it in your suitcase! they x-ray all checked luggage. go with a local you trust to the bank and do a wire transfer. make sure you use cash that you are holding, make sure you fill out the form. like i said previously in other posts basically do not be too trusting. never let your money out of your sight

Their is NO limit to wire money (USD) out of China aslong as you can prove that you have earned it legal and have paid taxes on it. Their is a limit of anual amount ($50k) which you can CHANGE in rmb. 
All who say different have NEVER wired money out/in of China.

NO bussiness would ever be done in/out China if above wankers were right!

Here ALMIGHTY RETARTED Xpat.John, this is all you need for wiring money out of China. AS MUCH AS YOU WANT or have.
(1) application form for buying foreign exchange.
(2) your identification document, passports for individuals.
(3) certification on payment of all taxes. 

Prove me WRONG if you can IDIOT.

There are a few tricks you must know to get money out of China.  First, there is a limitation of 6,000 Rmb cash you can take with you on the plane.  Or its equivalent.  Then, foreigners are limited to exchange Rmb for dollars at the tune of $ 500 US dollars per day.  So, if you are taking a large amount, you will need a few days to take dollars. 
I would suggest if you are not planning on being here on a permanent basis, to get an account at your home country, and do make a few wire transfers of reasonable amounts not needed here to your account abroad just to become familiar with the procedure.  It will cost you a few yuans, but worth it from the lessons learned.
And as your stay winds down, and departure day gets near, do not wait for the last week to clear the account, do whatever you decide a few days prior just in case.
Like selling household items or bike, I know some that had to end up giving it away or just abandond them because could not sell them in time.

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
