  1. So happy to have you on our 3-day Qingdao private tour! Located at the southern end of the Shandong Peninsula, adjacent to the Yellow Sea, Qingdao is a unique coastal city.

    Upon arrival in Qingdao, your private guide and driver will be waiting for you at the airport arrival hall holding a welcome sign with your name on it. You are advised to arrive before 2 pm.

    They will take you directly to the Zhan Bridge for a tour. Located on the southern waterfront in the center of Qingdao, the bridge is a 440-meter-long promenade that extends from the land into the sea. Built in 1892, Zhan Bridge has long been regarded as the symbol of Qingdao. Stroll along the waterfront of the bridge, feel the breeze and watch the seagulls soar freely.

    Afterwards, you will be transferred to Little Fish Hill Park, located in the center of the city, which is Qingdao's first classical style hilltop garden park. The main building of the park is the Lanchao Pavilion, a three-storey octagonal pavilion with a height of 18 meters and a spiral staircase, which is one of the best places to enjoy the view of Qingdao's red tiles and green trees.

    After the tour, you will be escorted back to your selected hotel for rest.

  2. After breakfast at the hotel, you'll start your guided one-day tour of Laoshan from Qingdao. Head east for around 1 hour to the highest peak on China's coastline - Laoshan Mountain, which is known as the “Number One Mountain on the Sea”. Taoist temple, stunning sunrise and sea of clouds are the highlights here.

    Laoshan Mountain mainly consists of seven scenic spots, among which Jufeng and Yangkou boast the most beautiful scenery of Laoshan Mountain.

    Jufeng, or Giant Peak, is the main peak of Laoshan Mountain, the highest point of which is Laoding (Lao Summit). Here, visitors can appreciate the sea of clouds and enjoy the sunrise. Ju Feng is also a good place to experience the fun of mountain climbing, however, it has relatively high physical requirements and is not recommended for the elderly and children.

    Liuqing-Yangkou is very close to the coastline, where tourists can feel the soft sea breeze and enjoy the sea view in the distance. In addition, you can visit the famous attraction - Taiqing Palace, which is the place where the story of the famous Chinese novel “The Taoist Priest of Lao-shan” takes place. Your professional guide will tell you some interesting Taoist supernatural stories.

    After the tour, we return to downtown Qingdao to visit the Tsingtao Beer Museum, which is located in the birthplace of Tsingtao Beer and was officially opened on August 15, 2003, the day of Tsingtao Beer's centennial birthday.

    The Tsingtao Beer Museum covers an exhibition area of more than 6,000 square meters and is divided into three exhibition areas. Visitors can learn about Tsingtao Beer's century-old history and culture and see the production scene of Tsingtao Beer a hundred years ago. Visitors can also taste authentic Tsingtao beer, Tsingtao seafood and creative beer cuisine.

  3. Today is the last day of your Qingdao tour, and your first stop will be at May Fourth Square. You will see a red sculpture on the square, which symbolizes the spirit of Qingdao. From here, you can look across the bay to the lighthouse and the Olympic Sailing Center full of sailboats. If you are lucky enough, you will also watch the square fountain and the sea fountain performances.

    Afterwards, head to Eight Great Passes, the collective name for the dozen or so roads that crisscross the southern part of Qingdao's downtown area, most of which take their names from famous passes in China. In the spring, you can see the peaches in full bloom, enjoy the purple violets in the summer, and admire the ginkgo and red maple in the fall. The area is home to villas in the styles of various countries and is a photographic destination.
