Q: Where to meet people in Beijing?

I'm not into clubbing, bars, or art galleries that much.  But sometimes I feel like that can be the only way to meet people here (I've checked the Beijinger and sometimes that's all I find).  I like hiking and sports, but I don't want to shell out 1,000 RMB each time to hike a mountain.  Where do you go to meet new people in Beijing?

Ya, as @Brisguy says, joining a sports club is a good way. There are a few good rugby clubs (if that's your thing). Aound the gulou area are some low key, relaxed bars (even though you said that isn't your thing) where you can easily meet people. Going to a backpackers is also good but the people you meet there are usually just here short-term so they'll be leaving soon. Another way is to look up when couch surfing meetings are held (usually once a month) and the people there are always really nice, and open to meeting new people. Not really my thing, but church is a good place to if you're so inclined. Another good way is to sign up for Chinese language classes. There you'll also meet a lot of foreigners in a similar position to yourself. Almost all the people I know here now I met while I was studying Chinese at a university in Wudaokou for the first 18 months I was here. Also, if you're into sports try finding a sports bar where you can watch sport and meet people with a similar interest.

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
