Shandong

Trip Planner Asia  /  China  /  Shandong
Home of the legendary Yellow Emperor, the mythical founder of the Chinese empire, Shandong offers a whole spectrum of cultural sites combined with scenic nature. Ancient terra cotta warriors and impressive temples provide an unparalleled insight into the rich history that has unfolded here, with the UNESCO-protected birthplace of Confucius and sacred Mount Tai adding further interest to the area. With a 3,000 km (1,900 mi) long rocky coastline, the province offers great opportunities for water sports, with swimming and sailing among the best things to do in Shandong. Sampling the wine-producing region's local varieties of grape and visiting the capital city, with its 72 famous springs, also add to the experience. Make your own Shandong vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our China trip itinerary builder tool .
