Zhanqiao Pier, Qingdao

3.5
Must See
Get a sweeping view of Qingdao at Zhanqiao Pier, a 440 m (1,444 ft) long wharf that extends into the sea. A large octagonal observation pavilion stands at the end of the pier, giving you a panorama of the crescent-shaped skyline and the bay. A landmark of the city and recognizable on a local beer label, the granite-columned pier symbolizes Qingdao's development, as the first wharf built as a naval pier in 1891. Join locals in a stroll around the pleasant surrounding area, where you can dip your feet into the shallows of a nearby beach.

  • It is a point overlooking the old town from the sea. From Qingdao railway station near can feel free to the Sri heard that many tourist destinations around the world all precautions should keep always exaggeration to say so is not from it.

  • There's a lot of travel around, and there's plenty of time for tourists. The scene itself is only the Hoteis bridge to the sea, and it is not much of a feature. It's a very tense time to look away.

  • There is a subway nearby, no matter when the tourists are very much. The scenic spot itself is only the pier to the sea, and there is not much characteristic. If the time is tight, you can look at it from afar.

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.
