Qingdao is one of the top destinations in China. Also known as the Green Island, this city has managed to preserve its past while angling a dazzling modern face. Its lovely streets, historic German architecture and red-capped villas are simply captivating.  We can’t forget to mention this city’s diverse food scene, headlined by the famous local beer Tsingtao. 

Generally, the best travel activities in Qingdao can be cited as follows: swimming in the sea, having a Tsingtao Beer, experiencing the beautiful weather and climbing Mt. Laoshan.

Facing the Yellow Sea, Mt. Laoshan is located to the east of Qingdao. This impressive mountain is famous for its beautiful scenery close to the sea. It also holds a significant importance in Taoism. In fact, Laoshan Mountain once had 72 Taoist temples housing thousands of Taoist priests. Most of the temples were destroyed but Taiqing Temple still remains as the largest and the oldest one in Laoshan.
