Q: Just how polluted is the ocean water in Shenzhen?

For those who don't know, Shenzhen has the world's fourth largest port. As I was swimming in the ocean earlier this summer, I could see the cargo ships not too far off floating about.

So to anyone who knows - what's the pollution like in the Shenzhen water - how bad is every unintentional gulp of seawater down there? Numbers appreciated

You will never know any official numbers.  China won't allow that information to be known.

Not only is Shenzhen the 4th biggest port in China, but it is also the dumping area of the Pearl River which flows through some of the most industrialized parts of S. China.  

It isn't as poluted as the Ganji river, but it isn't that far off.  Thankfully there are some good tides that keep the gunk from sticking around too long.

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
