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

As one of the most famous landmarks of Qingdao, this is a place you should visit when in Qingdao. I especially recommend visiting the place at sunset / night, as it looks best when illuminated :)

Interesting sculpture called the 'The May Wind', that is in a very historic square, with good views of the business quarter on one side and the sea on the other side around downtown Qingdao.

Very close to the restaurants by the marina, if you're staying in a central location it's worthwhile having a walk around this area.

The red artistic torch at the May Fourth Square may look touristy but not many of us knew of her historical significance. In fact, the Square was the first site in the whole of China where the May Fourth movement erupted in 1919. The First World War saw Germany annexed and colonized Qingdao. When the war ended, instead of returning... More

There is a small pleasant park surrounding the artistic torch in the May Fourth Square. The square is one entry point to the Olympic sailing marina so it is easy to stop for a picture on the way to the marina. At the marina, take an electric cart tour of the marina to the lighthouse for a quick overview.

It's good to say that you've been there and done that. It's a famous symbol of Qingdao, broadcasted frequently on Chinese TV. So it's a cool to take a photo with the structure so you can say you've been there & done that.
