Well done for not answering the question but simply ploughing straight in with they rip off foreigners. I live in Guangzhou and run my AC at night for around 8 hrs a day, my monthly electric bill is around 280 - 400 a month. I will check the unit price later and let you know. As for being ripped off, its metered and you can check it yourself.

I would have to agree with marcupton here. The unit price should not be that high especially in GZ. In big cities such as BJ it's not that high. You could probably expect to pay around 200 to 400 kuai a month for electricity but that is of course how much of it you use. Remember to turn off all the electricity when you have no need for it to save you money and also protect the environment for myself and people like Marcupton.

Thde electrfical bill is not really  a month after months same price per Kw/hr used, it would depend from what it is generated.  If hidropower it would be cheaper, under 0.5 (like 0.489765 Rmb/Kw-hr), and if coal, gas or oil generated steam used to drive generators, then it would be more expensive, here is just under 0.7 Rmb/Kw-hr.

I do not live in Guangzhou, but in Guangxi Province (next door west), and my eletrical bill fluctuates from 250 to 400 Rmb per month, if I run all A/C units (two floors, 190 sq mts, 4 A/C units) 24/7 it goes to around 800 Rmb per month.

Water bill also fluctuates, some months as low as 12 Rmb, others as high as 17, yet I use always about the same amount.

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
