It was low tide when we visited this pier/bridge which is also known as the Zhan Bridge. It was interesting to see people fossicking in the rocks exposed by the low tide. Entry into the pagoda at the end of the bridge was RMB4 but there did not appear to be too many people paying to go in. It was... More

The pier was across the road from our hotel, well located for a brisk morning walk. It's 440 metres long and gets very busy with tourists and locals, so best to go early in the day. It's illuminated at night, really lovely.

The pavilion set at the end of the Zhanqiao Pier is one of true landmarks of Qingdao. It is also famous nationwide due to its place on the label of Tsingtao Beer, the most popular beer in the nation. Dating back about a century, the pavilion is designed in Ming Dynasty style with yellow ceramic roof tiles and green and... More

This is located along the 1st beach area If you stand at a high point, you will see that it is a building on an arrow.

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.
