    Beautiful place, with vegetation and different beauties from the rest of the city. Has a great organization to be able to get to the desired points.

    The Park has several options. Impossible to find everything in one day, the place is smplesmente awesome, bought the ticket (130RMB) which gives right to meet the bottom of Laoshan and made the first stop on a tour of the Taioísta Temple, and the last stop, Yangkou Sation, where I visited Mitian Basement. This cave takes you to the top of the mountain, where you can enjoy the beautiful view of the Huanghai sea. Is care to go back and meet more attractions ....

    Heard so much about reputation in laoshan mountain, Qingdao finally feel in this time. Drove all the way from downtown to the East, the traffic is very smooth. When arrived at Liu qinghe Bay, saw the left hillside in the distance stands a European style building is quite exotic. Along the trail winds its way up, as if crossed into another country, where the air is filled with rich European-style. Shanghai, flowers in the wind, in front of the sea so softly, across mountains and more quiet. The oncoming sea breeze, a little bit of coolness, feeling fresh in early autumn. Between the mountain, it is difficult to find the unique world of sunset, curtain falls, scattered between mountain and sea, warm light is blinking, that moment only prayers and best wishes!

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.
