I have not gone to Nanhu Lake to see the Dragon Boat races in years now, too crowded for my taste, a lot of police blocking places and access, and to far away to really see anything unless you have some good binoculars.  A few years ago they were held in the mid morning hours, I honestly have no idea when will they be held this year. 

But knowing Chinese displeasure of sun light, high noon will not be the time to be held.  Either mid morning or mid afternoon will be a better guess.

I will visit Gao Village and their Dragon Boat races on Yongjiang River this coming Saturday at 10 am.  Less persons and more enjoyable.

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
