Chinese Couple Cross The Globe To Spend Their Honeymoon In Preston

When you think of a honeymoon, most people see palm trees, sea, and sand, but that's not for everyone.

One Chinese couple have travelled around the globe to celebrate their marriage in one of the most unusual locations you could think of. Preston.

Legend Liang (yes, that is his real name) and his wife Carmen, came 6,000 miles around the world to visit the northern city and take in its many and varied charms.

You see, Legend studied in Preston at the University of Central Lancashire, which has had a partnership with the Guangdong University of Foreign Study since 1986, so he wanted to bring his new bride back to show her what it was all about.

On their two weeks of holiday they also took in the sights of London and Brighton, but none of it was as enthralling to them as the wonders of Preston.

Legend, who is journalist working for the Guangzhou Yangcheng Evening News, said: "I wanted to show my wife where I studied, where I lived in Whitendale Halls and on Fishergate, and how lucky I was to have the opportunity to live in a lovely small city which had an international perspective."

Fair play, if you're in to it, you're in to it, I guess.

He hadn't set foot in Preston for ten years before their visit, and he was amazed at how much things have changed in that short time.

The university has expanded and changed quite dramatically, but he was particularly surprised to see how much Preston's market had changed.

He said: "The Media Factory was a building site so it's nice to see that looking so good, Fylde Building has gone and there's others being built while in the city centre the market has changed so much."

But how did Carmen, his wife, find her trip? Well, any bride should be so lucky as to be whisked away to Preston for a few days.

Legend says that she thoroughly enjoyed her time in the city. He said: "She thought London was a huge city, just like we have back home but Preston was really nice because she could see how UK people live and work in a small city with everything they need being close by."

Perhaps this is just the start of Preston's journey to becoming an internationally desirable holiday destination. Perhaps we will see thousands of tourists clamouring to see the town's brilliant brutalist bus station, and clogging up the bars of pubs such as The Continental, and the Sun Hotel.

Then again, perhaps not.
