Discover the Chinese city of Qingdao

The tourism in Asia It has grown tremendously in recent years, probably thanks to the increasing influence that oriental culture is having on the rest of the world. China It is one of the countries that takes the most tourism from people who visit the Asian continent, although many people do not know beyond Beijing and a couple of other cities that are very famous.

Today I would like to write about a Chinese city that is not very well-known but worth visiting as it is very interesting: Qingdao. It is a port city that is in the east of Shandong province. It is a very developed and large city that has many bridges since it has several rivers, so the different points of the city are connected to them. All of these bridges are also due to the fact that formerly Qingdao were three cities, but they got together and now there is only one.

Places of interest

Among the most interesting things you can discover in this city is the Lao Shan shrine, which is really 40 km away, on Laoshan Mountain, a place considered sacred and very important for Taoist pilgrims. The Zhanshan Temple is one of the most interesting Buddhist temples in the province, and St. Michael's Cathedral is also very interesting. Other places worth visiting are the Plaza del 4 de Mayo, Ba Da Guan (neighborhood colonized by the Germans), the Zhong Shan Park, the Muelloe Zhan or the famous Tsingtao brewery.


The weather in the city it is usually very pleasant all year round, and neither the summers are very hot nor the winters very cold, so on a purely tourist level it is very interesting to visit any day. Here the most famous beers of the country are produced, which are also exported to numerous countries. Qingdao is twinned with several cities in the world, including Bilbao.
