Qingdao

Trip Planner Asia  /  China  /  Shandong  /  Qingdao
The city of Qingdao has become particularly well known for its clean streets, orderly layout, and blending of the old and the new. While much of the east of the city was built in the 1990s, Qingdao maintains a historic, colonial-era core, dating back to when imperial Germany took what was then a town of 1,000 people. German architecture and culture represent some of the highlights of Qingdao sightseeing--complete with bratwurst and beer sold on the cobbled streets of the old quarters--while the modern additions' thoughtful planning make an exciting and accessible modern city. The beaches draw in the crowds during the summer, while the city's coastal position helps to keep it a little warmer during winter and autumn. Qingdao is in Shandong. To plan China vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Where to stay in Qingdao

For upmarket, high-rise hotels in Qingdao, look at the area to the east of the center, largely revamped in time for the 2008 Olympics. Here, skyscraper chain hotels jostle for position on the main streets, offering sea views and a wealth of additional facilities, while humbler options sit on the side streets, offering more basic lodgings, but still in new blocks. To the west, the more historic districts have a good set of hostels, hotels, and guesthouses to suit a wide range of budgets and tastes.
