Q: Want to know why it's a bad idea to go to Happy Valley?

If any of you have been toying with the idea of checking out Happy Valley over the next few days or weeks, don't! At least not now. I made the unfortunate mistake of going to the one in Beijing last Monday, thinking that Monday would not be as crowded as the weekend. But boy I was wrong. It turns out all kids are off school at the moment so where do they all go? That's right, Happy Valley! Each and every child in Beijing seemed to have been squashed into the amusement park on Monday. To cut a long story short, I have yet to try out any of the cool rides because I couldn't be bothered waiting in line for 2+ hours. That's not an exaggeration!

it is summer time. Apart from the fact that schools are off, there are also more tourists around. (although there has been a drop of the number of foreigners, for obvious reasons)

Too true. That reminds me of my first day in China and the frustrated words I overheard from a somewhat seasoned expat: "1.3 Billion people in China and they're all trying to get on the same train as me!!"

There's a ride at Happy Valley called The Victoria. Very popular, but you can only ride it once.

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
