Polar Ocean World, Qingdao

3.5
#1 of 10 in Zoos & Aquariums in Shandong
Feel the chill at Polar Ocean World, an aquarium with a particular emphasis on the wildlife found at each pole. See bottlenose dolphins, sea lions, walruses, whales, sharks, and arctic wolves at the facility, as they swim, laze around, and feed in enclosures designed to resemble their natural habitat. Expert trainers put on regular performances with the animals, so pull up a seat at the main theater to watch the synchronized routines. Note that some visitors have reported poor conditions for the animals--read up on the latest reviews before going, or consider an alternative attraction.

  • Haichang, Qingdao polar Ocean Park is also worth a look. I was taking children to see at the weekend, son the first time I saw the Penguin, polar bear, Arctic wolf, very exciting. I am more impressed by is the white whale, was sprouting da, very cute, see authentic Mermaid line! The dolphin show is wonderful, there are several actions, is very difficult, the dolphins really are!

  • This park buys its dolphins and false killer whales from the Taiji drive hunts, animals are dying horrible deaths because you buy tickets to see them. DONT VISIT ANY PARK WHO BUY DOLPHINS FROM JAPAN
  • See animals, are all human beings, perception is poor. The animals are sad eyes, any sea world and the Zoo is to animal cruelty.

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.
