The May Fourth Square is a beacon on the skyline of Qingdao at night, beautifully lit and present. During the day a popular spot for kitesurfing and tourist touts.

This is little more than a public square with lots of people doing things. The monument is interesting and there are lots of people flying kites. I spent about 20 minutes people watching and ended up wandering off. There was also an interesting strip of stalls selling shells, etc between here and music part. Nice place to visit, but I...

Despite the fact that this is a good architectural structure, there's nothing beyond just taking a picture and walking away. If you decide to come here do not spend a whole day in this area. As well, It's an icon of Qingdao due to the fact of the historical background that it holds.

when viewed after dark this installation is illuminated so really resembles a flame. By day it is still pretty impressive but not as much as the view on a clear day. A great place to appreciate the ocean and stretch your legs.

Great location, Good sea breeze (you will freeze here during winters), good place for shopping local souvenirs, During low tide you can see loads of local people fishing for seafood in the shallow waters of the sea, very pathetic sight and very smelly too during low tides, otherwise this monument is a great monument and not to miss, looks so...

This square is named in memory of the May Fourth Movement. In Qing Dynasty, Qingdao was leased to Germany in 1897, and the whole Shandong Province became part of the German sphere of influence. In World War I, China was on the side of the Allied Triple Entente in 1917. However, the Versailles Treaty of April 1919 awarded German rights... More

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
