depends on wht you want to do. i like going to teahouses, and Wenxiang Teahous on Tiyu Xi Lu is set in a garden environment. You can enjoy many differnet types of teas that are brought and served to you in excellent wares and you can see rotating art exhibits there too. this place and the expereince of it seem very chinese cultural to me

There are all types of cultural things to do. You could ride a rickshaw, get on one of those fancy boats that you can rent and ride around the lake, visit some performances like chinese acrobatics, opera etc., if they have that going on there at that time. Learn a dance outside with those groups that practice their traditional dance. They can probably be found in front of shopping malls or in neighborhoods. 

Visit one of their buddhist temples if there are any there. And if your not buddhist you can at least observe the culture and how they worship the buddha here.

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
