You will definitely face racism if you look Indian (I know that some Bangladeshi look Burmese). To the Chinese, South Asians are a lower race, they are fed with negative stereotypes about Indians (the race, not the nationality) that also apply to Bangladeshi and Pakistanese. Expect to be extremely unpopular with Chinese girls and to be ridiculed by Chinese guys in public at any given opportunity.

You can get a general idea of any city in china (the world for that matter) with websites like these on the internet. Videos on youtube too which you should have watched if you have done your homework.

 

What is missing in all of the above is --- when it comes to china 99% of what you see are untrustworthy. Why?  Daluren will do anything for money. Why are those website being created in the first place? For your money. This is the first thing you must remember. And this include government websites. Why do you think the American embassy has their own climate equipment to detect pollution level in various parts of china (which is smart)? 

 

Racism, daluren are trained to view foreigners as enemies. There is a local well known saying, a covered up insult which daluren keep to themselves, and I will expose them here. It is called squatting on your knees to feed the pigs.  Meaning, scraping off your dignity when it comes to money (feed pigs, sell pigs, grow rich). This is their general attitude to any foreigner IF they deem you as usable. So, you can call it racism or money worshipping. 

 

Coming from Bangladesh you of all people should immediately understand all of these. I don't think you will suffer any major cultural shook with china, except it is worse than where you are from.

Are you concerned that people may think you are indian? Because, you know, all white people come from American [sic] and eat 22 hamburgers each day, all black people come from the mysterious country called Africa and are dangerous criminals, and all brown people are from india are the only peoplr in the world who eat with their hands....ewwwww, so dirty.

Are you starting to get the idea?

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
