Q: What is the closest to home vacation you have ever taken?

This weekend, myself and a few mates are having a weekend away. When I say away, I mean it is 40 mins away by car.

As we were arranging it, it occured to me that we are organising a weekend break in an exotic place, within spitting distance of where we all live.

My question is this. As you already live in China, does exotic travel mean flights to Vietnam etc, or places within a day of land travel? Does the definition of 'exotic' change depending on where you live?

When I was in China, the most 'egg-sotic' was Sichuan mountains known as panda's habitat not far away from Bijie, where I lived at the time.

Before I arrived to Bijie from Kaifeng, Henan, I thought that will be some exotic spot.

 

However, I rather went to Himalayas (Nepal and Himachal Pradesh, India) for vacation. Both spots are much more exotic than anywhere I was in China.

 

I missed Ho Chi Minh ....jungle, but I'll go there next, since I am in Russia and I don't like very exoticly-cold-Syberia.

 

Everywhere in China is under the developing drive and Himalaya is just a Himalaya angel till the next earthquake.

Really don’t see how you can call that area “exotic”? It’d be like my family going to Liverpool from Mabchestwr and calling that “exotic”!

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
