You want to go to some deserted place? During Chinese week-long holidays?

 

Best place to stay during Chinese holidays is your apartment ...

 

This is '8-years-of-China' experience talking to you! 

 

Travel around China before or after the Chinese holidays ...

I know what you mean, I like the historical stuff too but everywhere I went that was old and should have been cool was ruined by being 'rebuilt' (the wall) or 'improved' (some of the old temples I saw that were decorated with tacky plastic shit so it looks like a theme park).

 

 

I agree with icnif, trying to go anywhere during a public holiday is frustrating and horrible, anywhere of interest - and therefore popular - will have you rubbing shoulders with a plague of domestic tourists following their tour guides who will be screaming at them through a megafone and acting like, well...domestic tourists.

 

Day or overnight trips near where you live are probably your best bet, that or head out to Xinjiang where Chinese don't go.

I can't reply to the message above ^ I dunno why. Yeah exactly I don't want that stuff. I would go to xinjiang to be honest, but would they allow a foreigner going there? Not sure about all the security and camps and crap is real but would it be fine?

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
