Q: Why do most of the taxis in Beijing go off shift at the same time...during rush hour?

I lost count of the number of times I've been down in CBD and waited for a cab for over an hour at 18:00 or 19:00...ridiculous.

Is there some actual logic behind not staggering cab shifts in Beijing?

because doing it any other time would make too much sense.

Same where I live. I've always assumed it's to do with food. Many offices I have worked in or had to deal with seem to grind to a halt at mealtimes.

Stupidity which would translate into "not understanding Chinese culture"... They've been driving taxi's for 6000 years and it must be done that way, you have the culture shock!

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
