Badaguan Scenic Resort, Qingdao

4.3
A classy evergreen seaside sanatorium, Badaguan Scenic Resort offers a survey of colonial European architecture at the turn of the 20th century. Originally a residential area for Germans during their protectorate of Qingdao, this historical coastal mansion retreat for foreigners features national styles of architecture from more than 20 European countries, distributed across 70 hectares (1,729 acres). Each street lined with a different tree species, the area makes a popular spot for wedding photography. Take a stroll along the canopied lanes to explore architectural styles including Romanesque, Neo-Gothic, Baroque, and Rococo, and then relax and gaze at the ocean from the sandy beach.

  • Interesting old homes in European styles, but there is an admission fee for each house and one needs to do a bit of walking.
  • The food the price and place much better than Hong Kong.
  • 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).
