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: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
