"Saagar's Qingdao info" Qingdao by Saagar

Qingdao Travel Guide: 194 reviews and 806 photos

A Coastal Delight

Qingdao is a bit of a surprise.
One expects a quaint German town on the beach, and what you get is this multi-million metropolis. Yes, with German overtunes, but also with a definite Chinese hinterland and a glitzy strip of skyscrapers, reminicent of something out of the America(s) - Puerto Rico, maybe? Lucklily, the sea front remains an attraction for just about all stakeholders in this city's development; it's both the reward and the reason for much of Qingdao's existence. Let it remain so!

More information?

It takes some effort to piece together all you need to know to travel and visit to Qingdao. My best advice is that you use several sources and compose your trip that way. Below are the official information sources on Qingdao.

    Qingdao is a beautiful city, and I like it too. Shangri-La hotel and Seaview garden hotel are the best 2 hotels in Qingdao. You can also find some delicious local dises in the small restaurants.
