Our trips here are always just okay. There are a few big shopping malls in the area, and loads of food choices, but overall, there isn't much entertaining things to do. Some of the boats are really pretty, and you can walk pretty far out on two piers, but don't go out of your way to come here. You can... More

Olympic Sailing Center is located in downtown Qingdao. Nearby there is Intercontinental Hotel, Hisense Plaza and Bai Li Plaza (both are shopping malls). So, it is very easy for tourists to visit this site. There is a walkway in the middle, from which you can enjoy a nice view of May 4th Square, and at its end there is a... More

A good sample of the olimpic side of Qingdao. Like other cities which had olimpic games...it change the city forever. Looks like the olimpic spirit still burning in that place. Amazing.

Well spread out with restaurants in there in the vicinity, this place is ideal for a stroll in the evening if weather is good. Maybe frequency of boats could be increased for the tourists as the wait between departures is long.

It's a great place to just walk unless its smoggy. There are a few activities and lots of other things to do nearby, especially at Marina City.

Beautiful water front with spectacular view of the city. We came thru the site of the May 4th monument. there are vendors peddling gift items. It is clean and organized. A lot of people pose with the red Olympic torch as the back drop. There is a much more modern shopping mall on the other end. Locals tell me the... More

I was here about two months before the Olympic Games in 2008 and this was a great place with lots of activity and boats and flags... it has lost some of it charm now but is still an interesting place to come and see - walk out along the seaward edge to see the ships sailing by (if the visibility...

This center locates near to May fourth square. It was the place where the 29th Olympic sailing was held in 2008. The building there was magnificent. I thought Chinese government invested a lot of money in it.

Worth a good walk down the front to get a great view of the city scape Im sure it would have been even more spectacular during the 2008 games. Now a little bit run down in places very close to some western style shopping centres and a sailing mecca in China.

I was impressed with the facilities and layout of this sailing centre. It was also aesthetically pleasing. Located conveniently next to a shopping mall and hotel, seafarers do not need to wander far for their necessities. I managed to catch the crew of the round the world Clipper race at the dock - awesome! Worth a visit even if you... More
