Q: Where can I go strawberry picking in or around Beijing?

I've seen a poster on a bus but it flashed by too quickly. Has anyone ever gone strawberry picking close to Beijing? Know the name of the place or website info? Thanks!

Few things you can do, like Google "location of strawberry farms near Beijing" for more results.

One of the largest strawberry growers near Beijing is located at 2001-1-1, Nanxiaojie, Guangqumen, Chongwen District, Beijing.  They have about 800 greenhouses full of strawberries for you to pick.

There are lots of places in the suburbs where you can go picking strawberries.

There's a place in Shunyi called "北京绿富农果蔬产销专业合作社" which offers public strawberry picking until June. Their strawberries are quite expensive however - 60-150 per 500 grams.

Cheaper places can be found in Pinggu, Fangshan, Changping and Daxing Districts. If you can read Chinese, this website has all the details:

I can agree with Redaria. Strawberries and berries are more expensive in China. 

If you do go strawberry picking it won't be free. And it won't be without someone constantly watching you. Nothing is free and that is also true about picking strawberries in China. Somebody owns those strawberries so most likely you can't just go picking strawberries in a field. 

You won't be able to find any places in the inner city but on the outskirts of china places like the far North West of Beijing offers places to pick strawberries.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
