We sat as the top rotated 360 degrees and enjoyed a clear view of the port, the city, the new buildings going up, the old German buildings, the Protestant church, the Catholic cathedral, the pier, the sea, etc. etc. It was a clear day and we could see everything! I highly recommend this!

A recent tour to Qingdao had us visiting XinHaoShan Park otherwise known as Signal Hill Park. I'm not absolutely sure of the price, as the tour guide sorted out all of the money/paperwork, but I think it was around 10rmb, which is absolutely miniscule (around £1.14 at time of writing) considering the views that you can get once you're inside. On the way up we came across all kinds of areas such as 'Love-Lock Bridge', which "following local customs, newly married couples would attach a lock to this bridge..." We also chanced upon 'Five Dragon Pool', which, as the name suggests contains five dragon statues in a pool. Now, I've seen photos of some of the dragons spurting water like a fountain, but this didn't happen on the day we went. A shame, but then it is just water squirting out of a few dragons statues. Now, the main attraction, right at the top, is probably the watchtower, with an ever so slowly rotating platform, which gives you a fantastic 360 degree view of the park and, well, Qingdao. It's a easy climb to from the front of the park to the tower, I have very dodgy knees these days and I found the climb to be a doddle. Worth the quid entry and then some.

The entrance fee of Y25 which inculdes the climbing on the hill's top 'mushroom tower' (which holds a rotating 360° platform) is worth the money as you get one of the best Qingdao overviewing lookout in town. I do recommend to combine the visit with a visit to the old German 's Governor's House very nearby, which is a real lovely place.

The 15 yuan admission is bit annoying to pay...but it has by far the best vantage point for looking down at Qingdao...admission includes the Mushroom Building which is a rotating observatory...

Last Day in Qingdao briefly visited there as well! Lost control on the time, but still manage to make it to the railway station by 6pm. This park is GORGEOUS! Love the golden statue fountain in the middle of the pond!! Then because it's technically on a hill, you can certainly have a grandview of the park and the country side of Qingdao! Marvelous!
