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.

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.

Many visitors to Lao Shan go up the mountain, visit the Beijiushui waterfalls or visit the south coast and go to Yakou and visit the temple there. By chance I came across a really great experience at Yang Kou on the north east coast of Lao Shan. You can get there by going to the main Lao Shan visitors centre... More

With propper shoes take a taxi to the entrance of the Lao Shan national park. There are offered busses to tempels, cabel cars into the mountains and mant trails through the mountains. If you do any tour, be aware that you"ll have to do about 400 meter in high-meter, while the distances per tour are about 7 -12 km.

Fellow travellers What a great day out ! Don't be daunted by going there by local bus, no need for a tour bus / guide, unless you want that comfort. Getting there from Qingdao was quite easy, I caught the local 104 bus from the main road. They are very regular. Got on the bus and the ticketing person came... More

Bus 104 from nearby the nearby Hong Kong Middle Road costs 3RMB. The journey to Láo Shān highlights how big a city Qingdao is and how big it shall be one day. The journey takes around one hour. The Qingdao Laoshan National Park entrance demands you enter it by bus. The ticket is ¥130 (Tàiqīng Gōng/The Temple of Supreme Purity... More
