  • Is an old neighborhood, lots of visitors, and lack of transportation. On the landscape, not beautiful, but also very clean and pleasant. Take a walk after supper is quite good, but if you hold the "the view" attitude, you will likely be disappointed. Actually a modern buildings, and without that feeling of old buildings.

  • This area is large and pretty much a neighborhood. Plan to walk a lot and look at nice architecture that is very un-Chinese. We didn't pay to get into the main attraction (the building pictured) and i...  more »
  • Overall a good environment, green is very good, some of the unique style of architecture, Princess Lou doesn't seem to attract people, take the stone look more ^-^. There are many Wedding couples, which is very suitable for framing. Sea breeze blows cool, take away the heat of the summer, and very comfortable.

  • Historical district with a lot of parks and old buildings, THE local spot for photo shots. We have encountered no less than 40 couples taking their wedding gown pictures here.
  • The driver suggest we revisit here in April or May when the view is the best of the year.
  • A nice area to walk around and enjoy the greenery and european style architecture. It's also near the beach (no. 2 bathing scenic area).
  • Relatively green neighbourhood.
  • Nice place.

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.
