Q: What is the traditional dress in China?

I've seen on posters the traditional Chinese dress, but I have no idea what it is called. And do you know a good place to buy one in Beijing? A good quality one, that is. And what is usually the price range?

It's called Qi Pao.
And better go to a tailor and make one.
As it only looks good when it fits perfectly. Wink
Pricing is not an issue, u can get fair pricing according the quality of fabric.
If u r in Shanghai I can take u there, but have no idea about Beijing.

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
