Headed to this area as it was the top rated attraction above so many things in Qingdao. But there was really nothing fantastic - just some large homes, quiet housing estate and that was it. Disappointed.

Badaguan or "8 great passes", named after the passes at the great wall is an area in Qingdao where the Germans and later Japanese build their residents. The area is nice and calm with little traffic and quite beautiful in the evening. But I also agree with the other reviewers that it's nothing very fancy. Also many houses are starting... More

A good stroll around the area offers interesting discoveries on every turn of the maze like streets in this area. The architecture of these grand old buildings is obviously of a different and earlier era. The only regret is the high walls surrounding these compounds that does not allow a better view of these beautiful buildings. There are bicycles available... More

It's just an area filled with lots of European-ish houses. Nothing special about this place, you can't even enter the house. This place is huge and you cannot find any public transportation once you go inside.

It is quite nice. We drove around it couple of times. Then we had a chance to stop and look. We only stayed here for half hour.

This is a pleasant area with nice streets and houses adjacent to the beach, and I suppose it is a calm oasis compared with the bustle of most of the city. However, you can't go in the houses (obviously); the best sights are the brides and grooms among the trees and on the beach enduring their 'wedding-photo day'.

If you are looking for the old buildings left from the German era, this is not the place. This is an estate for the rich and the houses are not that European nor old. Beside, almost all the houses are restricted and hidden by trees and bushes so there is not much to see. However, the estate is quiet and... More

U can only see the old houses from the outside as not allowed to go in except 1 old mansion belonging to an ex-general. Paying ¥$8.50 just to see some old photos & furnitures really a rip off. The seaside view I along the road is quite scenic.

If this was any other large city Badaguan would not rank in the top twenty, but this is Qingdao. The area is pleasant enough, but to be honest you are doing no more than walking around a rich neighborhood. Go to any high end neighborhood in your local city and you have Badaguan. Quiet, peaceful, shaded with trees, large houses... More
