You can take a public transport & walk under a tunnel to get to the pier. Be prepared to see snacks, souvenirs & clothes while you walk along the tunnel. They close the pier once they discover that the waves is strong, even as early as 2-3pm.

It was my first place to sightsee while in Qingdao. Because it was so crowded, it made it less enjoyable. The temple at the end is good for a couple of shots but that's about it. The view of the pier looks better from Luzin Park. But it's not far from the Catholic Church, which was a lot more visually... More

This is a nice pier to watch people strolling. There is also a hutong lookalike building at the tip of the pier. We visited the pier on a saturday evening and it was very crowded.

We went there at night. And the view was excellent. There were some small souvenir shops and the wind was just awesome. There were two singers singing some really nice songs for the tourists.

Nice place for a stroll on a windy evening. Very picturesque and a good spot for photography. The place could be improved with a few nice bars & restaurants, preferably open air.

This is a great place to go with kids. There are beautiful views, lots of vendors, and a nice walking pier with a beautiful pagoda-like structure on the end. This is a place with a lot of history that is uniquely Qingdao.

Nice stroll along this pier which was extended by the Germans when they developed the City. Views across the bays. Makes a great evening walk and the surrounding rocks and beaches great for crabbing. Nearby restaurants.

We live near here so it's a great place to visit. It can get really crowded in the summer, but that can also make it interesting. There are quite a lot of other things to do in the area as well.
