the requirements for foreigners to get the permits necessary to travel to Tibet keep changing. The last i heard was if you have a residents visa, you can't go.

I heard that the city you apply from plays a role. It is supposed to be faster if you apply from Chongqing or Chengdu than from Beijing. I think it is best you talk to a travel agent and ask for their advice. They know better than anyone else.

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
