  • It is representing the Qingdao University. Site is very large and time consuming to navigate the campus. It is a natural, very good environment.

  • I stayed at the International Hostel of the Qingdao University. The campus is very quiet and the interior is clean and well kept. The locals won't help you much though. 
  • If you want to see the school People's Republic of China. Size is large, if you go in the summer, trees and a lot of good in the winter is that doc.
