Never travel a week before and week after Spring festival. Stay home during the holidays, too!

Assuming you're in Beijing..  if you want to go to the Forbidden City, just get on the subway and go. The subway takes you there.

 

As for the wall, depends which part you want to go to probably. I haven't been there for years and honestly have no interest in ever going again but when I did I went to Simitai (spelling?) which is quite a way out of town. The hotel we were staying at was able to arrange tickets on a bus going there and back.

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
