Q: Why do people flock to silk markets if they know what they are getting is fake?

The first time I came to China I told my advisor and she asked me if I could get her a fake bag. I didn't really know what she was talking about until I finally came to  China. Why would anybody want to come to China just to get some fake bags or fake clothes?

Because it's cheaper, that's why. Some people care more about price than authenticity. If you lived in America, you would know that plenty of women go to New York to buy fake purses for 15-20 bucks a pop. That's not just a Chinese thing.

Because it's much cheaper, obviously. Some of the fakes are good enough to pass a casual scrutiny.

I've bought fake stuff before (bags, watches), not because I'm trying to convince people that I've bought the real thing, but because the design standards of the originals are high and therefore the copies look decent too.

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
