Summer Palace can be too crowded and touristy. I would try exploring some of the towns and sites outside the city. Cunadixia is an ancient village with original Mao slogans still on the walls. It's a trek to get to but you can aparantly take a bus from Pingguoyuan subway station.
I'd also check out Miyun County with its resevoirs, gorges and hiking opportunities. I also heard that Beidaihe is a good summer escape with beach, water etc. though it also gets crowded in the summer.

I think a really good Summer place to go to have fun is the great wall. SHould be very warm and a good walk up to one of the wonders up the world. Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven are also two good places to visit. Sort of touristy but still really fun to visit those places in the summer.

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
