Nice trip along the sea shore.

Getting there and viewing the sea scape along the way was the best part. Lots of walking involved to see now much.

The hike can get tiring at some points, but it feels like the lungs are cleaning themselves up with the heaving and peeving.

You can reach it by taxi or public bus. We didn't take the cable car but walked instead up which was great as you have a great view of the mountains and the ocean behind.

We stayed in Qingdao downtown and took the public bus to Dahedong Tourist Center (大河东客服中心) in order to visit Laoshan. It will take you more than 1 hour to arrive the destination since the road to Laoshan is currently under construction and the traffic jams definitely will occur. The bus ticket fare and the way you pay depends on which... More

We were in Qingdao on a free and easy tour. We stayed at a hotel near Huiquan Square and ventured on our own accord to take a tourist bus from the bus stop outside the No.1 Bathing Beach and proceeded directly to the part of the Laoshan scenic area at Yankou entrance. The bus fare was RMB10 and I remember... More

There are two different tours available, one for 130 ¥, one for 120 ¥. In this price, busses inside the park are included. There are several temples on the mountain, which are very interesting to see. The atmosphere is amazing. You should take a whole day. It's possible to walk up and down, but also to take a cable car... More

Laoshan is worth the hour's cab ride from the city centre. We paid 500 RMB for a cab for the day. It didn't appear that there were a lot of options for getting home so unless you are taking the bus I wouldn't get a one-way cab as it's possible you'll be stranded. Allow a couple of hours to climb... More
