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

Very crowded and lots of people trying to take sneaky pictures of my fiancé! It seems to be the thing to do though, walk to the end of the pier and back.

I insisted on going even though my driver laughed when I said I wanted to come here (because it's in all the tour guides). There's absolutley nothing wrong with it, a nice walk along the pier to the pagoda, taking in the views of European style rooftops.
