not that great. typical chinese city, not really worth the trip.

unless your going there anyway, Qingdao is much better. the air is a bit cleaner too.sometimes you can even see the sky!!

I spent 10 months there and found nothing special, it is called the spring city, but most of the spring were dry. There is a lot of dust in the air, so much that it is hard to find people cleaning shoes, because no one has them cleaned. The dust gets so dirty just walking for a day on the street. I found hiking in the mountain close to town was the best thing and the special magical flowers that grow wild there.

I lived in Jinan for 6 months. There are some ok springs such as the baotou spring and the dragon spring but these are just day excursions which you wouldn't want to repeat for at least another season.

The winter can be long and cold upto 5 months of 0 to -10. There is traffic everywhere you go, and the environment is not good. I climbed up thousand buddha mountain and you can just see the smog spread out in front of you.

Jinan is a cheap place to live, but if you're looking for any kind of foreign food or beer think again!I Jinan is near to tai shan which is a fantastic mountain to climb ad one of the holiest mountains in the world. Also it's only 3 hours by train to Beijing.

That said, I wouldn't recommend it, there are far better places for you to visit in China.

i lived in jinan for a while when i first got to china. i can say by experience that it was kinda dull(probably because i didn't know the language).i usually hung out at the city square and around it. u can't really see the sky at all. the chinese friends there just wanted to go to karaoke and stuff which i wasn't really interested in. there was this one place a bit further from the city, where you could go skiing during the winter. me and my friends went to climb a local hill(don't remember the name) that was a fun experience. i still have friends there. i was a nice experience 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
