Q: what is the difference in the cost of living between Guilin and Guangzhou?

Also the salary in Guilin is lower. I'm just considering the expenses.

When I came to China on a permanent basis, I compared Guangzhou and Nanning.  A  200 sq meter apartment, furnished, in Guangzhou (depending on which area of the city) was between 10,000 and 20,000 Rmb per month rent.  In Nanning was 3,000 to 4,000 Rmb per month.  Food in general, clothes and others were higher in Guangzhou than here.  This is why I choose the Green City to live.

In China, living in Beijing is the most expensive.  Shanghai comes in at a close second place.  And next will be Guangzhou and Shenzhen.

I only spent a short time in Guangzhou, but it seemed to be about as high as it gets in China, similar to Shanghai or Beijing.

Guilin is one of the lowest cost cities I've ever seen, though. I was paying 500 yuan rent for two bedrooms and a large balcony (not downtown, though, and no hot water; didn't seem like a problem as it was always 40 friggin degrees). And if you avoid downtown and touristy areas, prices are extrodinarily cheap (a good restaurant meal for two for 20 yuan, one that would cost you 50-80 in here in Zhejiang).

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
