View is excellent. Trees, water and interesting scenery. You have to climb 500 meters. From Qing Dao it too 30-40 minutes to arrive.
We took a day tour to Laoshan by ourselves during the Chinese Golden Week. Enjoy to walk around the mountain beside the sea. The steps were well decorated and convenient for people to climb the mountain.
I visited Qingdao as part of a trip around various parts of Eastern China in October 2012. Our hotel recommended Mt Laoshan as a day trip from our hotel and thank god they did! We had a fabulous day and the view from the top of the mountain was spectacular. The cable car ride to the top and down again... More

We took a taxi from our hotel (city center) to Laoshan. The driver asked for RMB 400 but we insisted on using the meter and than paid RMB 77. Return - same game, the drivers (we asked a few) wanted RMB 100 but we found the honest soul which used the meter and we paid RMB 53 for the return... More

Drivers in China are not known for their safe pleasant driving but this trip takes the biscuit. The minibus drive you HAVE to take from the ticket office... More
We went. What a waste. We got there - very confusing what your ticket acquired. We took shuttle buses to the various sites. No explanation as to why you were kicked off the shuttle buses here or there. Follow the Chinese tourists. Climb stairs. One never saw much. Super dirty restrooms with no doors on the stalls. We could go... More
Do not take those tour cabs who offer a ride to laoshan. They will start with a price and then ask for more once it's finished. Once you arrive at laoshan, there's a 5 minutes cable car to the top with fake carvings in rocks and superficial scenery. At the top of the mountain, you can see the sea and... More
I was with a tour group for a conference. After getting our tickets we had a special bus take us to the mountain. Then we climbed stairs the entire way. I never made it to the end. I didn't think it was anything special (after being to Denali and the Rocky Mountains) this was somewhat pedestrian. There were vendors the... More
I travel laoshan almost every weekend sunday, every time from different way, every time it's beautiful always amazing. because we go from wild way, not from the place tourist go, what we see are all very naturial places if you have interest you will see some of my photos
