Try Beidaihe (beach) or Badailing Great Wall area (mountain) resorts, both within 2 to 3 hours of driving or train distance, or go further north to China's oil capital, Daqing City in Heilongjiang (average temperature is about 25 degrees in the summer) by flight (about 2 hours)

Another option is taking a train to Chengde. This was one of the summer retreats of the Emporer Kangxi and as you can guess, the main attraction there is a palace, temples and numerous pagados, similar to the Forbidden City in Beijing.

Trains leave from Beijing Railway Station and the whole journey takes 4 hours. Once you get to Chengde, just take a cab to the summer palace. Staying there for a night is highly recommended though if you don't want to rush.

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
