This is the most beautiful and important landmark of this city. If you arrive here do not forget take some picture and walk around at the pier. From here you can see the nice sea view and many boat and sail. I will be back.

This has become one of the "identifiers" of Qingdao. If someone sees a picture of this, they know it's Qingdao. It is right on the waterfront and there are many food stalls just a short walk to the right. It's also nice to visit at night time.

The giant sculpture is the official symbolise of Qingdao City. If your are familiar with its history you will be appreciate it more. It is easily accessible via public transport as it located in the CBD and directly opposite the waterfront. There is plenty of hawkers selling trinkets near the square.

By itself, it wouldn't really be worth the trip, but there are quite a few things nearby like a waterfront walk and you could fly kites here too.

We walked through this park today. It's average, and probably would mean more if I knew the history behind it. It's probably a good place to visit and sit in the summer. We were there in winter and it was too cold to hang around!

The May the Fourth monument represents a Red, anti-imperial whirlwind rising up to sweep Japanese colonialists out of Qingdao, as happened in 1922. While this little-known episode of history is locally important, it isn't something which will be particularly significant for most foreign visitors. Mind you, the skyline here is one of the more attractive outcrops of glass skyscrapers I... More

May Fourth Square has some important significance in Chinese History, so a trip here means a little more than just a representation of a windy city. This iconic landmark along the coastline of Qingdao is possible to visit 365 days out of the year. Just around the corner from Marina City and Music Square, make sure to spend the time... More
