Sailing Capital of China

Rizhao translates as "sunshine," with the city so named because it is the first in the country to receive the morning sun. Miles of golden sand beaches provide the focus for many Rizhao itineraries, with the coastline of calm sea and stretched sand cherished by beach-lovers and sailing enthusiasts alike. Sprawling tea fields and bamboo forests outside the city help the air quality here (some of the best in the country), and add to the relaxing feel of the place. Whether you only want to go to Rizhao, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly China trip itinerary maker .

Where to stay in Rizhao

Four hours away by bullet train from both Shanghai and Beijing, Rizhao has been fast developing into a weekend retreat for city dwellers. As such, it has a wealth of accommodations to offer. Look across the city center for the most popular among them, including high-rise luxury hotels overlooking commercial areas, and standard guesthouses and hostels close to the main train and bus stations. Look closer to the coast for some more luxury options, or consider staying overnight at the one of the rustic tea plantation houses on the outskirts of the city.
