The May Fourth Square which runs from the Xianggan Middle Road in front of the city hall right to the waterfront. The most visible aspect of the park is the striking red "flame" sculpture which dominates the shoreline. During the day it sticks out like a sore thumb but it comes to life at night when it is brightly lit... More

An excellent area for either a mid afternoon walk round the bay or a late night party with good night life. The stalls selling are pretty much identical but it's still worth a trip to see.

a very simple and symbolic visit to the most famous spot for Qingdao, The seaside walk and the square give their best in the evening; the skyline with lights show from skyscrapers is amazing. Not like Hong Kong but closer then you may expect.

The memorial is actually really good, well designed and built. The area provides a a good spot for an excellent picture with the new town in the background. Other than that, not a lot going on. The standard photographers begging to take a picture of you (at a price). I thought the view was better from the Olympic sailing centre.... More

Our hotel was 10 minute walk from here. We stopped by around sunset as a last stop before going back to the hotel. There was a nice big lawn next to the red scultupre. We even bought a kite (RMB15) from the vendor and that kept us entertained for a good half hour! I liked that everyone was doing their... More

I was glad to see the square again this time, but from above. I remember being here a few years ago, but it's much better to come at night with all of the lights and people around. I had a great view of it from my hotel room, too. Recommended!

- a short walk to the main shops and a lovely walk along the waterfront to the Olympic area & marina. Lots of little shops selling good souveniirs and great pearls. good quality but make sure you bargain. to get good pearls, ask for the more expensive ones they dont have on display and see the difference in quality. you...
