Q: Vendor honesty in China

I sometime is suspicious about vendors selling scam and fakes. I know prices are cheaper here because most product are made in China, so no cost for exporting, but I was wondering if they bound to any rule stating fake is faek and real is real. Halp?

I assume you mean quality standards?

I'm sure they do, though it probably doesn't mean much. It'd be a little like the food quality standards, which don't mean a damn thing. Just another bribe here and there to get the necessary permits.

It's generally obvious though, if you're buying a luxury product, the shop has to meet the standard of the good. And if the price is too good to be true, and the vendor is being emotional and aggressive in selling the product, then it's usually fake.

Use your common sense, PoutineduFion, and you'll be fine.

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
