China Railway is the most convenient and cost effective. They have a pick up and delivery service charged by the kg with an option of drop off at the nearest destination railway station or delivery directly to your place of work/home address. The price is cheaper than courier service or China Post.

if you pack yourself the train can provide plastic containers that they put a seal on, you arrange for the containers sent to the station and you pick up on the other end at the station. i would pack the containers myself to avoid breakage.

I used China Post to move. Convenient, and fairly inexpensive.

Pack your favourite tshirts, jeans and laptop.....douse the place in petrol, toss a match, close the door and head to the airport. Easy.

We moved to China with two suitcases and a dog. We can still do that. Quit being such a materialistic fool and give your shit to homeless people.

I love cooking, so I had bought many kitchen supplies that I did not want to have to rebuy in a new location. Also, as a teacher, I have made many teaching supplies purchases. So, I packed most of my belongings in plastic totes, sealed them in shipping tape, and used a courier/shipping service. They came to my apartment and took my things, including my bicycle. When the things arrived at my new location, everything was well. They had wrapped my things in a burlap sack bag. My bicycle had been taken apart and packed well. And, the cost was under 500 rmb for 6 packages. Well worth the investment. The only problem was that I had to re-assemble my bicycle. I was not in a location that had access to the train service. Plus, the idea of hauling all my things to the train station for them to ship it was not a great idea for me. So, this was the easiest and most convenient way for me to move. I have used this system three times since being here in China.

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
