Q: Where do you prefer to live in china? Big city or small town? North or south?

I know there are pros and cons to every location. Just wondering what you all prefer.

Big city in the south. Small towns are basically where the people without city qualifications go, which attracts other kinds of people with problems. And why would any self-respecting expat from a western country choose to live in third world conditions? I get it if you want to experience it for kicks, but long-term living? That's indicative that you have unresolved issues at home. Not saying big cities in China are paradise either btw.

Best city in the Middle Kingdom is SZ.  You can wander off to HK anytime u get in the mood for a bit of world-class style living.  SZ has everything of course,,, and being near the ocean it has an ocean atmosphere,,, cleaner air I mean and the just good feeling of coastal air,,, it feels, tastes, smells different,,,,   

plus in SZ you can tell newbies the story of how ol' Deng stood there looking out over HK and said 'Chiner should be like that ,, fk communism!'   surprise

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
