About Qingdao City:
Qingdao is a famous tourist destination in China. Here you can find a wealth of Chinese culture alongside modern amenities with the relaxed atmosphere you'd expect in a beach town. The city proudly hosted the sailing events of the 2008 Beijing Olympics and one of China's largest marinas is here, too. The town is crammed full of coffee shops, restaurants and small bars plus lots of shopping areas, including a cheap and lively night market.
Qingdao is divided into two parts, the old and new; the old is home to the German concession area where you can find European architecture and churches among classic Chinese style buildings. The new area includes the downtown business district.
Finally, you can't talk about Qingdao without mentioning the famous famous brewery and Beer Street. Tsingtao Beer is known throughout China and the city has several popular beer gardens where you can grab a cold beer and authentic German food.
