Shanghai Zhaotun village is well-known as "the hometown of Strawberry" in China as there are hundreds of strawberry greenhouses in the area (around 2000 acres). Every year, fromÂ late-December toÂ Mid-May is the best season for strawberry picking in Shanghai. Come and join this 6-hour fun tour to taste the fresh strawberries!Â You will receive complimentary half-kilo strawberry on your way out from the fields. In addition, you will enjoy some local delicacies as lunch at a local farmerâs home followed by famous Zhujiajiao Water Town visit. If you have been to Zhujiajiao before and want to do something else this time, the beautiful Dianshan Lake in Qingpu District can be a good option for you.
Your private tour guide will come to pick you up at your hotel lobby in the morning, and take you to Zhaotun Strawberry Park in Qingpu District, the well-known for its 20 years research and plant technology. Upon arrival, the first thing you will notice is that you are not actually picking strawberries under a yawning blue sky but in the green house tent with some bees around. But don’t let this deter you. The strawberries are worth it! You will find the strawberries there are sweet and run-down-your-chin juicy. Your guide will accompany you to one of the tent to pick up the strawberry, and you can taste it as well during the picking time. You will surely have so much fun there!
