Q: Outside the concrete jungle

Anyone know of any quiet places in the countryside around Shanghai worth going to?  I don't want tourist traps or mountains with man made concrete steps up them. I want proper countryside.   The weathers nice now and I want to get out of the city and away from the crowds.

Mmmm. Not sure about the area right around Shanghai, but I know around HAngzhou ther's a ton of hiking and mountains to get into if that's what you mean by countryside. And even the tourist trap areas have their particular draws. Walk 500m- 1km from the draw and you'll find your solace Smile! Happy searching!

There's a popular thing called 'Nong jia le' which means happy farm. Hahahaha they are usually 1-2 hrs outside of Shanghai. What it is, you book a coutry side villa, and it's enough for 10 people. The more people go, the more cheap it is, ie it's 1000 yuan, so even if it's 5 people or 10 people, the price stays the same.
Here is a site you can have a look at, www.ssddf.com

This includes them cooking food grown on the farm from you :) sorry the site is in Chinese ... But they have some pictures :)

Not sure about Shanghai but in Beijing on the outskirts they have beautiful mountains with natural trees probably over 100 species of trees and plants there. You'd probably have to go near the farthest point get on the subway and go at the end away from the middle of the city!

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
