Tourist Attractions in Qingdao

The Pier
Built in 1891 in Qingdao Bay, the 440m Pier stands out as the city’s dominant symbol. A semi­circular breakwater and the traditional octagonal ‘Huilan Pavilion’ in the south are recent embellishments.

Climb a flight of steps for a spectacular view of the sea fusing with the sky.

The Pier Park on the northern bank, lined with exotic flowers and trees, is a picture of tranquility.

Lesser Qingdao
Known for its exquisite rocks and flora, Lesser Qingdao (or Qin Islet) is a solitary islet in the shape of a qin to the southeast of the pier. On the islet stands a white pagoda, 15.5 m high. Built in 1900, the pagoda is an important navigation mark. After nightfall, the lights on the islet resemble ‘floating lamps’, one of the 10 scenic sights of Qingdao.

Overlooking the Huiquan Bay, Badaguan is widely known for its architectural brilliance: 200 villas, undulating roads, tree-lined avenues and the ‘Cherry Flower Path’. Often called the “World Architecture Museum”, Badaguan has two of the world’s most famous villas: Flower Stone Building and Princess Villa.

Street of Sculptures on Chinese Civilization
The 12.8 km street runs along the beach all the way from Sixth Road, Peace Corner in Badaguan to the Stone Old Man National Tourism and Holiday Area in Lao shan Mountain. Sculptures that line the street combine ideology and art. Look out for “May Wind”, the largest work of art in steel in urban China.

Stone Old Man National Tourism and Holiday Area
The resort in the east of Qingdao, replete with an ocean amusement park, is known for marine sport and other exciting forms of recreation: dolphin performances, yacht racing competitions and, come August, the Qingdao International Beer Festival.
