  • A very scenic area by day with a lively atmosphere, lots of hawkers and stalls along the promenade where you can buy many trinkets with a mall south of this location and a few restaurants through out. May Fourth Square has the must see Winds of May sculpture at its heart which is a red 700 ton metal sculpture modelled after a gust of wind. I definitely recommend coming back to the square in the evening to see the Winds of May lit up against the city skyline. There is also a stunning view of Fushan bay and the Qingdao Olympic Sailing Center if you walk just past the Winds of May towards the coast.
  • While being a landmark of Qingdao, during the day its just a monument. However, the area looks stunning at night - with the monument lit up and modern buildings in the background, the area deserves a handful of night view photos!
  • Spacious and modern. New symbol of qingdao. Another must see scenic spot in qingdao.
  • Great at Night.. Near you can reach to QuanJude, Beijing Duck.
  • Great space for everyone to enjoy
