The only luck or something that I dealt with for teaching at hotels was from the TESOL institute. I graduated from the Tesol institute online and got three certificates. I found the Tesol Office and they offered me to teach at some hotel or at some airport. I think they were offering me both but the location was really far. If you go to a tesol institute they might be able to hook you up.

Networking.  Many hotel representatives attend networking events all the time.  They would be a great way to get your foot in the door and establish a contact list of the people you are interested in talking to.

 

In Dalian the American Chamber of Commerce is very active as well as the International Club of Dalian (http://www.icdalian.com/).  I have met many hoteliers at events held by both groups.

 

My advice would be to take it slow at these types of events.  These people get hit up with different proposals all the time and they can be a bit gun shy around people they don't know well.  So take the time to make friends first, then breach new business ideas.

 

Dalian is a great place and I miss it dearly.  Enjoy.

The summers in Dalian are fantastic and the air is the cleanest I have seen in China.  

 

On the bad side, the winters can get brutal cold.  Not too much snow, but a heavy wind that blows through most of the 5 month winter.

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
