The Zhanqiao pier is of course famous as the logo of the Tsingtao beer brand. It's a nice stroll down the pier in summer but always extremely crowded on a half decent day and not much to see once you've reached the end. For best views I recommend going to little qingdao island further in the bay...

I didn't go into the building at the end of the pier, which perhaps costs money), but I did walk around outside and took some shots. Add this to your must-see list if you're into taking photos. There were some Chinese Navy ships in port that you could see in the distance.

Extremely popular place to walk at weekends this quaint pier was very busy. A little dated were the numerous photo booths offering to take group photos whist we were surrounded by a sea of mobile phones. If its cool do take a coat. Nice to take in as part of a walk along the Marina too.

This must be the top attraction in Qingdao, as despite being off peak, the pier was still crowded with many tourists, eager to photograph every different vantage points of the Hui Lan Ge pavilion. Don't let the crowd deter you, one would still marvel at its build and beauty from a distance.

Loved to take a walk here, it was on a Sunday so there was a lot of people, and I took a lot of pictures (actually, Chinese people took a lot of pictures with me, as I was the only foreigner)

Nothing really special about the pier. However, if your in Qingdao it is something to do and gives you a water front view of the city. Not sure if it is better at night or during the day. Lights of the city at night are nothing to write home about. Not like Hong Kong. Anyway, worth a look see. The... More

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.
