Q: Trains and Metro - overcrowded?

No matter what time of day, it seems like the trains are nothing more than cattle cars. Packed together like sardines and people just keeping crowding in. Why? It gets so bad I can't breathe and then I start feeling claustrophobic. why don't they do something to ease the flow of people? Maybe more trains

If you are in Beijing, this is normal.  Have you ever been in New York or London or Paris during rush hour?  Try Tokyo if you think this is bad.

Beijing has the third busiest metro in the world. more than 10 million people a day using it. They do try and accommodate the massive amount of traffic. During peak times they have more trains than during quieter times. I think for now it is manageable and they are adding more lines every year so it should get better.

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
