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.

    Qingdao Pier is one of the attractions in Qingdao seaside scenic spot, is a State in 1982 published the first State-level scenic area, is the first 4 a-level national tourist area. Qingdao trestle by Hui LAN GE, Zhongshan Road, composed of little Qingdao, beach and other attractions. World famous Qingdao Beer labels, engraved with the figure of Qingdao trestle of the same age. Qingdao trestle bridge is 440 meters long, 8 meters wide, steel-concrete structure. Long lines, straight into the depths, as is the center of the sea, then stopped, turned into a booth, named Hui LAN GE, octagonal pavilion, is not uncommon in ancient Chinese architecture, but the sea view, are rare. Fog rising from the scene, overlooking the sea, where, like a mirage. Autumn bridge, be sure to drive at high tide, standing on the bridge of the West Bank, see tide stirred up waves, fracking, very spectacular. At low tide, the tide returned hundreds of meters, there will be a lot of picking seashells on the beach, clam-dredging tourists, seagulls hovering hovered off the coast near the place, maybe this is the most romantic place in Qingdao. Along the North Bridge, designated a "Jetty Park", flourishing plants in the Park, Pine Green, with stone benches for visitors to rest, watch the sea views; West side with bright lights, at night such as Zhu Zhu yulan magnolia bloom. Bridge itself can also be docked cruise ship, boat trip to see the sea in Qingdao.

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.
