You can buy train tickets in Ticket Offices. They should be all over the city. Called 售票 (shou4 piao4) something. But usually the signs have Latin letters saying ticket office or so.
There you get every ticket. Sometimes you have to pay a litte fee of about 10-30RMB per ticket.

Then you can ask your Hotel or Hostel reception. They either know where to get a ticket or can even get a ticket by themselfes for a fee.

In Total a much better way to buy tickets than being at a crowdy, messy and stressful train station!

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
