It's a historical site with beautiful sea views. It was crowed though and not much going on around the place. Expected to walk around for about an hour and go somewhere else.

Zhanqiao Pier is an iconic symbol of Qingdao. It is visibly distinctive with her octagonal pavilion right at the end of the Pier. Standing at the pavilion, the panoramic beautiful skyline and the gorgeous coastline of Qingdao spread out like a piece of master art in front of you. I was staying at the Motel 168 Railway Station and the... More

Zhanqiao Pier, located at the coastal area at the southern end of Zhongshan Road, it is an extension of the road into the sea. It is just about 0.3 miles from Qingdao Railway Station. At the south end of the bridge is a Chinese style octagon pavilion. Some small art exhibitions are often held here. Zhanqiao Pier provides a panoramic... More

A narrow pier with a (very) small building at the end. It may be one of the most symbolic sights in Qingdao, but it is rather disappointing.

No big deal here, just a pier and not much else. I think you are better off going to the island across the way and taking photos from there.

Nice view over the bay once you find a spot to enjoy it. You walk down Zhongshan Lu and you will hit it.

I'd definitely go if I was you! You must capture the moment when you're in company of the symbol of the city. I rated it 3 stars because my experience wasn't the best. It was horrendously crowded. We only had the time to go half way, take a photo and walk back. Be aware of the people, there are so... More

Pretty nice for jogging early morning, especially in busy summer. Less people no tourists no shops, peaceful and fresh.

The Zhanqiao Pier is another must see attraction while visiting Qingdao. The pier is long in length and wide in width and is well maintained. At the end of Pier is a lovely Pavilion. When standing at the end of the Pier and to either side of the Pavilion, there are stunning views of Qingdao city - very photogenic. See... More
