Q: Where to go to get pants altered?

I got a pair of pants I got from home and need the leg altered. Where can I send it for alteration (in Beijing) and how much would you normally pay for it? In Canada, it is CAD$10 which is about RMB 60.

Hong Kong has best tailors. They never charge me for anything.

Normally (at least in the city I live at), when I buy new pants and need the length of the legs altered, I take them to my local laundry place, and have them cut them to my length, then wash.

I pay for cutting it and washing it under 15 yuan, takes two days.

I found a shopping place in Beijing that does alterations. The price is cheap and you can get it done that day. I'm not sure if you've ever been to the shopping area in Beijing the last one you'd probably see if you were to take a taxi to the airport. You can get it done there they have a little shop so you just have to look for it, but it's there. cool

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
