Most of these places do not accept a passport or FEC, on occassion if someone at the front desk has some competence, they would understand the passport number. The best way, to be honest, is your student card" if your a student", or find a Chinese friend who can make a copy of is ID card or help you at the counter.
Now, before you think of how stupid this is, let me explain why it's this way. In the past five years, government documents, banking documents and corporations have been hacked into exclusively by some really intelligent hackers in China. Usually, when the real IP address is finally surfaces after months of breaking VPNs they find that these hackers are using Wang Ba as there staging poing. Similiar to disposable cell phones in America. You use it once, do the damage, and toss it away, no paper trail and nearly impossible to remember everyone who could have possibly been the culprit.

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
