Just a couple of small alleyways teeming with colourful street stalls selling weird and wonderful foodstuffs. The speciality seemed to be squid on a stick. It was covered in a sweet spicy sauce and was delicious. We passed on the scorpions and insects though and opted for some delicious steamed buns instead. Well worth a visit!

Wonderful hideaway of delicious street snack foods and cool old buildings. Also located in the old German part of Qingdao so many other attractions not far away. Definitely worth an afternoon.

Good place to just wander down the little alleys and have a nosey around. Good to end up for lunch here after a morning walking around the Badaguan area and... More

Pichai Yuan (Pichai Courtyard) 劈柴院 is a treasure cove of old Chinese culture. It is located at Zhongshan Lu, Shinan District, Qingdao (青岛市市南区中山路), one km northeast of Qingdao Railroad Station, in old town. Here you can sample some of the more unusual foods, do a little shopping of very memorable souvenirs, enjoy tea served from a very long beaked water... More
