Famous for being the home of the ubiquitous beer Tsingtao, this city is a favourite among tourists from China and abroad. It boasts an intriguing blend of concession-era and modern architecture and embraces both Eastern and Western culture.CHECK AVAILABILITY
Bavarian-style houses are a prominent feature of the cityscape, as locals continued to build them long after the German concession ended in 1914. Recognising the historical value of these buildings, the city takes great care in preserving them. With mountain views, seaside promenades, colonial buildings and pleasant parks, this city has it all.
A visit to Qingdao would not be complete without a tour of the Tsingtao Beer Museum. The old brewery was established in 1903 and continues to produce the nation’s favourite beer today. See the brewing and bottling in action and enjoy a pint of freshly made beer!
Climb to the top of Little Fish Hill for spectacular views of the old European quarter, including Catedral de San Miguel, the largest Gothic-style building in the city. The botanical gardens on Little Qingdao Island are worth exploring and a historic lighthouse offers lovely views across the city and the sea.
The city is best enjoyed by strolling the avenues, parks and promenades, so remember to wear comfortable walking shoes.
