Q: What is the best place outside of China to travel to from Shanghai?

Back home in the states all those dream places we'd all love to go to (Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong) all seem soo far away, or at least the ticket prices do. Now that I'm in China, specifically Shanghai a major airport hub, I'd love to do some traveling around Asia for the lowski. I am wondering which nearby getaways are the ones most traveling to from Shanghai? Factors to consider: food, weather, shopping and cheapness of it all (cost of living). What do you guys think?

I'd say that whatever place you want to go to the most is the place you should go. A flight to Japan would be expensive, as would be the stay there. The flight to Korea is pretty short and also not a bad price, so I'd suggest there. Of course, once it starts getting cold, I think anyone would suggest a tropical place, like Thailand.

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
