We had a great walk through Badaguan's neighborhood and seaside walkways. The neighborhood is nice but signage to the significant buildings can be tricky at first as most maps are in Chinese but then we stumbled upon some English signage with arrows. The distance markers are not always accurate but we just kept walking to find the buildings we were looking for.

A friend had warned us the city was romantic and we would see why! This area seems to be a top spot for that with wedding photos and I swear we saw at least 100 couples getting photos taken with many of them in wedding outfits.

Closest Metro is Zhongshan Park but you could probably start there or Taipingjiao Park, walk the area including seaside and go to the other metro to get out of the area. If we knew about the boardwalk sooner we would have gotten there earlier to walk it from the Badaguan area to May Fourth Square.

The seaside areas appear to be littered with Tsingtao beer bottle glass which is turning into sea glass in some spots. In other spots it is just regular glass so please be careful if barefoot.

I think some people seem to misunderstand what this area is, so let me be clear: it is a few residential streets. That's it. The Chinese name for the area ('scenic resort') is perhaps misleading to tourists from overseas. The shady streets, quiet atmosphere and the German architecture is what makes this area lovely to wander around and take a few photos.

There are a couple of cafe/restaurants though, including the lovely Garden Cafe (pictured), and a fun succulent museum if you're a plant-lover.

I really expected this to be like the French Concession area of Shanghai... lovely shops and cafes, with at least one German restaurant featuring a nod to history. Nope. Tree-lined streets and one popsicle vendor.
I really didn’t get the appeal and just felt like I wasted time going there.
Maybe if it hadn’t been so very, very hot and very, very humid; or if I hadn’t been so hungry with no sign of food, it would have been a pleasant stroll to see trees... but, I doubt it.
The beach isn’t even enough of a draw to bring me back.

Qingdao did a great job turning these few houses into a peaceful haven away from the city. Although German presence in Qingdao only lasted for 15 years, Badaguan and the surrounding area demonstrates the impact was much more long-lasting.

Generally good. Great view and fresh air during the hot weather. But not much to do except walking. The beach was closed during my visit. Did not get why.

Even though we really did not get inside any of the villas here, it was still a nice stroll in the area. I especially liked the old-fashion street lamps, very pretty! There are many old trees in this area making it a breezy, cool walk even in the summer.

Badaguan, part of old city with old buildings connected to history, residential area with old villas, beach 🏝, scenic spot and generally very frequent visitor’s place. Well connected to downtown and walking 🚶‍♂️ is great 👍

Enjoy this visit. Firstly there is no cost involved. The cab fare to get there cost us only about 12RMB from our hotel. We visited the Princess House. The entrance fee was 10RMB and for those above 62 years of age, you get half price entrance. This is the case for many places of visit in China. Very affordable anyway. We walk around the whole area which has 8 streets in all. It reflects the heart and soul of Qingdao. There are many sights and places of interest all in walking distance of each other. Well worth a visit.
