Nice for early jogging

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

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

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

This is another site that you absolutely have to visit if you go to Qingdao, because it is just so iconic. You can spend as little as twenty minutes here or you can spend longer -- it's a pretty place to visit, there's a beach (though I wouldn't swim there), there are loads of neat little shops nearby, and it's...

Seeing the pier lit up at night is definitely a nice photo opportunity. However, the pier has been overtaken by beggars, street musicians and merchants trying to capitalize on tourists. Walk around the evening and see everyone looking for crabs on the rocks. The sight is quite fascinating. Walking up to the pier you can pay 4rmb to go inside.... More

Watch the sunset in Zhan Qiao. Not much really, just a temple at the end of the pier and I didn't even bother going into the temple. But I do enjoy a short walk along the pier with beautiful sunset. You can see a few artistes along the pier performing on street for money. Interesting to see.

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
