Purchases

Do not fall for any purchases when you go alone or with a tour group. The prices are not real, taken advantage of travelers.

Not as impressive as Yellow Mountain, but the views of the sea help make up for the lack of accessible areas. There is a bus depot to minimize the traffic into the mountain area, and although it was efficient, it was tough to see the views as they zipped past. Exiting the bus and walking the areas afforded better views... More

The area itself was nice, but it was not where I wanted to go. This area is along the coast and there are many great views from some of the viewing spots. This area also provides views of some large rock and mountainous formations. There are no waterfalls or rivers in this area, which is the area I wanted to... More

Duriing a four day visit to friends in Qingdao, we took the 104 bus (I think it was 104 chack that) from downtown to Laohan Beach for a day trip in May. It took about 45 minutes and we thought that we had missed the beaches. But have faith and stay on the bus until the second last stop. It... More

Looking at the pictures at the ticket office before our entry to Jinshui 18 pools, we marvelled at autumn time pictures where the leaves had myriad colours. But spring time pictures, with beautiful flowers were not too bad and we were all too eager to walk Jinshui 18 pools of Laoshan. The guide told us to take a round-about trip.... More

To save time, we took a taxi to the Laoshan area. We stayed in the railway station area so we went to the official taxi rank in front of the station. The driver to our surprise used the meter without asking for any crazy price and didn't raise any issue on the way. It cost RMB 72 to reach the... More

Very little English, so either sharpen your Chinese or be prepared to observe and follow the crowd. Ask your hotel how to get to the bus. Make sure you pick the bus that actually makes it all the way to the mountain climb entrance. My bus stopped about 1 mile short, to reverse, and essentially they kicked me off since... More

a bit of a bus ride from Qingdao centre, but the trip gave us a great idea of the nonurban life on the Coast. The green park was a pleasure to spend a few hours in and the Daoist Temple is not to be missed.

We took the tour to head out instead of public transport which turn out to be a good choice because public transport was packed till brim on weekend and public holiday. The first stop was muzu temple and the view was breathe taking passing by unique stops, mountain and old temples. The next stop was toasist temple which half of... More

not as nice as Yellow Mountain, but worth a day trip. Qingdao downtown area can be done in just one day. Spend one day doing Laoshan if able.
