Welcome to Qingdao

Nestled amidst the embrace of fresh sea air and striking aesthetics, Qīngdǎo (青岛), meaning 'Green Island', stands as a beacon of modernity while cherishing its historical roots. This exceptional city seamlessly blends its past with a gleaming vision of the future, boasting architectural marvels that overshadow China's standard white tile and blue-glass developments. The meandering cobbled streets, adorned with colonial German architecture and hillside villas capped in crimson, beckon visitors into a captivating journey. Moreover, Qingdao offers a diverse culinary landscape, with its crown jewel being the ubiquitous hometown beer, Tsingtao. Blessed by its seaside location, the city remains cooler than its inland counterparts in the sweltering summer and warmer in the winter months.
