I had lived and worked in China for a number of years, earning between 5000, and up to about 18000. Rented my own apartment, paid bills etc etc..

 

When I wanted to get an L visa to hang around for an extra 30 days, I needed to provide proof of being able to look after myself here (without breaking the law by working).

 

20,000RMB.

 

WTF???? When I was on 1/4 of that, I was able to survive! Why the hell would I need to have 20K now???

 

China is stupid!

There are these things called banks, they give you a visa debit card and you can withdraw money from an ATM. 

 

Which country you're from?

 

For example, I'm from USA , so Bank of America is the bank I chose before leaving because I did my homework and found that BOA allows no-fee withdrawals from China Construction bank

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
