Q: What ever happened to the smoking ban in public buildings in Beijing?

Is it actually a regulation/law yet?
Is it being enforced at all?
Is it completely DOA?

Being a non-smoker, I keep hoping that something with this actually happens. Because second-hand smoke is * awesome*.

Well business are supposed to have a smoking area but they are not forced to enforce said smoking area. There are supposed to be "secret" smoking police that if they catch you smoking where you shouldn't, then they will fine you a few rmb. So basically you can smoke where ever you want and you'll be fine unless it's just your shitty day.

The situation now is nowhere near what it was before. It's been a long time i've not seen anybody smoke in the bus, train, school, hospital. Even the taxi drivers seem to have quit as well... at least in GZ, but GZ seems to be more civilized than some other cities in many aspects

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
