You can explore the remains of an old German battery in Qingdao Shan Park and discover the city’s gruesome past at Qingdao German Prison Site Museum. Stroll along Zhan Qiao pier, complete with an aquarium and many vendors, and admire the collections in Qingdao Art Museum. Alternatively, you can learn more about the city’s history and heritage at Qingdao Municipal Museum, bask on city beaches, and take kids to Polar Ocean World. No visit is complete without sampling the world-famous Tsingtao beer at the historic Tsingtao Brewery. Foodies will be delighted with the many restaurants along Yunxiao Road. Jimo Lu Market and Taidong Pedestrian Street are top spots for some retail therapy.
While Qingdao has nice weather throughout the year, March to November is the best time for soaking up the sun on the city’s beaches and relaxing in the lush parks. Don’t forget to pack your sunscreen! Qingdao International Beer Festival takes place each August.
