The historic port city of Yantai retains a certain quaintness, despite developing into an economic powerhouse in the modern era. Monsoons keep the area humid and warm, and the conditions lend themselves well to the cultivation of fruit and vegetables, for which Yantai has become known, along with its abundant seafood. An old water city, once used as a naval base, stands out as one of the highlights of sightseeing in Yantai, with its well-preserved waterways acting as a window into the city's past, when it was often attacked by colonial powers. Our China trip itinerary maker combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

Where to stay in Yantai

The main urban area of Yantai offers a number of accommodations, particularly near to the harbor area. With some particularly luxurious options set in old neoclassical buildings, and side-street hostels welcoming backpackers, this central area offers a good level of variety. Look west of here to the mouth of the Jiahe River for a group of luxury hotels looking out over Taozi Bay, offering a wealth of additional facilities. Even further west along the coast, the old water city of Penglai offers a number of hotels and hostels close to its historic sites and other attractions.
