Q: Xian Vs. Nanjing: pros and cons.

Is Xian better than Nanjing, city wise? (quality of life...cost of living... Crowds... Public transport... Non-hostility to Arabs... City development...)
Pros... Cons... Help me out. Trying to find objective (ish) information for a friend to help her decide to stay in nanjing or leave to xian.

Culture and history are not a factor

Never been to Xi'An before, but the comparison probably won't be favorable to it... Well, just know some people who have lived in Nanjing long term that went to Xi'An and absolutely HATED it...    And they really dislike Nanjing too. But Xi'An was apparently pretty awful.  

 

In terms of specifications...  cost of living, ... dunno man.

 

Woulda said Xi'An's strong point was culture, but now I see you aren't really regarding that as important.

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
