It is a popular spot in qingdao. It's near the sea, and convenient to get to shopping malls and other sightseeing spots by walking. And there is a famous Peking duck restaurant at north of this site.

This is a great park to walk though early in the morning before it gets to hot. Lots of people about and things to see.

If you like walking - it's an excellent place. Clean, no cars, fresh air and surprisingly few people... The way goes directly to one of the best beaches of Qingdao.

One of the central squares in Qingdao, definitely a Must-see as visitor in Qingdao! Nice view of the skyline.

This is a nice public square. There is always a lot going on, from people flying kites, to blowing giant bubbles. There are always vendors peddling small toys and musicians playing music on Chinese instruments. The famous monument is right nearby the ocean, and it is a beautiful sight by night. This is a must-see while in Qingdao.

Great photo op. Read up on both the sculpture and the surrounding buildings before you go. Make sure to walk along the boardwalk and take in the ambience. If you are not Chinese, be prepared to be stopped often and asked to be photographed. If you pose for photos of your own, be warned, they will almost always be photo-bombed... More

Makes for a nice walk during the day! Lots to look at and it is right along the water. Lots of shopping (both stands and later in your walk you will hit a mall) The area is beautifully lit at night. Make a night out of it by going for a walk and walking until you hit a Shao Lon... More

A landmark monument for Qingdao, the red colour probably makes it stand out for Qingdao. An ideal area to relax, it is a must for every visitor to Qingdao
