Weekend Fun - Strawberry Picking, Kam Tin Country Park Hong Kong

Need something fun to do this weekend? Try strawberry picking! We went a couple of weeks ago and it's awesome! 

Tip #1: Go early, or all the huge red ones would have been picked up by the early birds.
French strawberries cost HK$60 per lb, Korean ones HK$90/lb. Most people picked Korean ones, including us. I don't know why... for me, well because I am a K-pop fan. Heheheh. I know, I know, irrelevant.

Tip #2: Whatever you do, DO NOT do this!!!
For each strawberry you ate on the field, you'll be fined HK$100. I repeat, HK$100 per piece of strawberry eaten. Marcus just could not hold himself... he grabbed one big red juicy one and put it straight into his mouth... without washing T_T

Tip #3: Strawberry picking is only available until late March. Better check with them before going.

Pretty strawberries in colors I've never seen on a strawberries before....
Very pretty!

And cute strawberry flowers...

Here's our loot...

Exactly 1 pound of juicy & fragrant strawberries.

You can also buy fresh local organic produce there.

You can go for a BBQ or have lunch there. We noticed that many people brought their own lunch, which is clever. Marcus scored a few skewers of pineapple and sausages from fellow strawberry-pickers at our table.
And of course, he ate his sausages in style.

There are lots of activites for kids there, like cookie baking (HK$80).

We just did cookie decorating (HK$30)
Sweet KODAK moment... what did they make?


There are also some balloon type of playground which Marcus loves very very much (HK$20/10 minutes).

He loved it so much, he refused to leave and cried like heck when we dragged him out of it.

We took this fun ride for HK$40 per round. Oh yeah, everything costs money.

And after a bunch of activities, fishballs, fish siumai & Vita chrysanthemum tea never tasted so good...

There are many more activities which we didn't get to try. 
Check out their website for more info (it is in Chinese, but you can use google translate & see the pictures).
How to get there?
Take MTR West Rail to Kam Sheung Rd Station, and take a short taxi ride to Kam Tin Country Park 錦田鄉村俱樂部
Opening hours: 10am - 6pm

Hmmm not sure if you got my previous comment. Anyhow, looks like you guys had a lovely time and I didn't know you could go strawberry picking in HK. It's nice to get out of the concrete jungle every once in awhile. :)
