I saw some statistic dating from 2007 that stated 131 million tourists had visited China that year. I'd guess that number flew up since then.

The stats of 131 million tourists visited China in 2007 isn't referring to foreigners only. It should be 131 million visitors (person-times) and includes people who travel between HK/Macao and China multiple times or on daily basis. The right figure for foreign visitors (person-times) is 26.1 million in 2007, comparing to 10.1 million in 2000 or 1.74 million in 1990 or 230,000 in 1978.

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
