  • One of the few beach resorts in Qingdao City. Far from the center of the beach, this access is useful among other things, is recommended. Visited because it was the season to swim a time slow but still play date was quite crowded. But Boardwalk and surrounding environments are furnished and synergy with the landscape seems to be behind Qingdao, was not good.

  • From spring until fall, when even more people. (Great China) from harvest qilin Hotel across the street two 10 minutes and walked. Sewing of the car is safe in the early hours, so across the very needs attention. Coast is about sandy beach 1 km (? ) And clean. If you go good so far. That woman in a wedding dress during the day on the beach. It is taking wedding photos. Crosses in the car right next to the road in June, floating a greenish ones have it. And the local people in recent years, blue-green algae, beaches and tough; Winter is beautiful from the beginning of autumn. Go by bus bus, so is good enough.

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.
