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

Nothing special about this place besides some photos with the ocean in the background. You can go on your way to nearby attractions. It's an old peer built in Qing some hundred years ago but experienced many reconstructions over the years.

If you've been to Brighton or Blackpool you've definitely seen a better pier. The views around the pier are decent. If you want to chill out and maybe read a book, I'd say this was a really really good location. I can't remember the time now, but when I was there, there were some loud noises coming from the battleships.... More
