City overview

Located on China’s beautiful easterly coastline, Qingdao is the perfect blend of urban excitement and natural beauty. One of the city’s most important landmarks is Zhan Bridge, which makes for a very atmospheric stroll. Huiquan Bathing Place in Huiguan Bay is arguably the most popular bathing spot in the city, thanks to its clean, soft sand, clear water, and gentle waves that make it ideal for swimming. The Golden Sand Beach, with its lovely warm waters, is another great place to visit. Head down to Badaguan Scenic Area to see elegant gardens and a unique mishmash of foreign villas and other attractions. Mount Laoshan, which towers over the city, is renowned as the birthplace of Taoism in China. There are several hiking trails around the mountain, so you can choose one to suit your schedule and hiking ability, and enjoy superb views over Qingdao. Climbing to the peak of the mountain is a very exhilarating experience, and it takes between two and three days to get to the summit of the mountain and back down again. The city has so many wonderful restaurants to explore, and it is particularly famous for its local, traditionally cooked, clams.
