Qingdao is located on
the Jiaodong Peninsula on Jiaozhou Bay in the Yellow Sea. The city
is admired for its clear fresh air, blue sea, red-tile-roof houses
and the abundance of trees and flowers. It is a famous summer resort,
a coastal city, and an ancient cultural city. The perfect reception
facilities and the convenient transportation system make Qingdao an
ideal destination for holidaymakers.
The eight-meter-wide Qingdao Pier is the symbol of Qingdao. It was built in 1897 and is an extension of the city's main thoroughfare, jutting a quarter of a mile out into the sea. A traditional octagonal pavilion has been added at the southern end. It is an ideal place to enjoy the sea view.
Also called Qingdao, Lesser Qingdao is located on Qingdao Bay. Trees are green here all year round.
Qingdao has a long snaking coastline. The water is clear and the sand is gold in color, making it an ideal place for bathing in the sea.
Some 24 miles east of Qingdao, Mt. Laoshan is a national-class scenic area whose perfect combination of rocky promontories and vast expanses of water delight the viewers with an unpredictable variety of captivating loveliness.
Many buildings here were built in German, Japanese, and other foreign styles. The most typical buildings of the area can be found in the Eight Passes Villa Blocks.
