It is because Qingdao's ICON that you should visit here! At any time, you can see many people walking to get this place. And so relaxing just to look at this seaside. The problem is that these days you cannot enjoy Quingdao without wearing a mask to avoid polluted air. (to tell you the truth, after visiting Qingdao, I had... More

A real eye opener as to the size and quantity of shipping in this small city. Reminded me of Vancouver Canada on steroids. Watch for the wedding couple photo shoots.

The pier is not too spectacular but the view of the bay is nice from the end. The entrance fee of the pavilion makes one curious but the exhibition (turtles !?!?) is rather strange.

Use as logo for tsianghao beer; we decided to pay a visit after touring beer museum. It is long walk towards pagoda and many beggars and musician are seen. We enter pagoda with a fee and it was waste of money. Only shops and you cant eveb see the view from top. Walk around pagoda to enjoy the view.its free!

I absolutely loved here! Visited in Oct 2011. This was the first sea port city that I've visited in China next to Dalian. Under the underground passage ways, you can find freshed made steamed crabs for 30 yuan. You can also find photographers who are ready to ask you take photos like those on Tiananmen Square except here are a... More

Zhanqiao Pier is near the Naval Museum, Small Qingdao Island, a swimming beach, Luxan Park and not far from the Qingdao Train terminal. It is serviced by at least a dozen bus routes including 231, 225, and 2. It has an interesting pagoda style building at the end and affords a good view of the lighthouse at Small Qingdao Island....

The concrete pier Zhànqiáo (you can see this on bottles of Tsingtao Beer in the logo) and the end pavilion houses a sadly dull aquarium and tourist stall area, making the 5RMB entrance questionable at best. You'll be pestered for photos and encouraged to buy tacky overpriced gifts.

From a historical perspective, it's interesting because this is the site of the original pier before or during the German administration. The building at the end is featured in the world-famous logo of Tsingtao Beer. But now Zhanqiao is just a 400m long pier, with knicknack vendors all the way down. The roadway nearby has recently been so clogged with... More

This pier built by the Germans gets very busy on holidays, it is a nice stroll to the end to take some photos. Don't bother paying 4rmb to enter the pavilion as it is mainly a shop selling the usual tat plus some rather poorly cared for marine turtles. The subway that leads to the pier is a good place...

This pier is in old town. There are quite a few things to see from here, and you can even walk to a few small beaches. Old Town has a charm of it's own, and it was quite nice walking around down there. After the long walk down the pier, there is a small temple at the end. There isn't... More
