This park or square is right in the heart of the city near city hall (within walking distance). I visited this location on Father's Day and there was an interesting variety show with singing and dancing - all very interesting. The sculpture right in the heart of the park and theater is exactly what you see in the tourist promotion... More

This square main attraction is the unique red monument. The name May Fourth comes from the time of the Chinese youth movement. It's located just next to Olympic Sailing Center, so you can just simply walk there after taking some pictures.

The square with the monument/sculpture is nice to look at, the park a pretty place for a stroll. Sadly, the vendors are horribly annoying, but if you can tune them out, it is a rather okayish place for enjoying a walk on the sea.

Best to go on a non holiday. Before May 1 and after Oct 1 holidays. People flying kites, kiddy bubble machines and grass you can actually sit on.

May 4th Square is pretty iconic of Qingdao. It's in a good location if you're going to be visiting the Olympic Sailing Center, and it's worth a few minutes of your time to take some pictures. I stayed nearby and was able to get pictures both at night and during the day, which was nice. Pencil it in, but it... More

Nothing much to see here. You can stop and take a picture, and thats about it. If you have a driver, you can ask him to stop and just take photo.

You can visit in the day and watch tons of people flying kites or in the evening and see the lights shining bright and if you are really lucky you will be there when a festival is occuring and you will watch as hundreds of lanterns are sent skyward. The winds are quite strong so bring something a little extra... More

This area is the focal point of the downtown area of Qingdao. Located at the crossroads of Hong Kong Road and Shandong Roads, this Square has endless shopping, restaurants of every type, trinkets, scenic views, hotels, banks, the marina, and children's rides. It is a "must visit," for those visiting the city and a gathering place for those who live... More
