Seeing on the web that Laoshan is rated as one of the most popular site, we ventured via the northern route. If you are looking for an easy route, try the southern one. The northern one is definitely not meant for those who are not active in life. It takes about 1,200 stairs to get to the top. Not much... More

This place was very beautiful with great views across Qingdao. Be prepared for quite a tough walk and bring plenty of water. This place was very well staffed too, even if the security process was a bit overly thorough.

Takes a while to get here but it's well worth it. Beautiful and scenic, the hike can take upto a few hours. Best to carry water / snacks with you as options there are limited. Make sure the weather is favourable on the day you go as it will define the experience!

I went to many Great Mountains however this is the only Mountain which i will strongly recommend. 1. Great Scenery - Theres sea and mountain. Each of the mountain is like a artpiece. 2. Fresh Air

We went for a whole day in mid-June and ended up wanting to stay longer. Enjoyed many beautiful views and informative visits along Taiqing-Yangkou route--temples, caves, mild and steeper hikes. Buses conveniently connect different locations, cable cars work well and shorten distances if you run out of time or energy--at extra cost, of course. All rides and walks were very... More

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
