    Crowne Plaza Qingdao

    by

    The hotel has about 10 floors for Crown Plaza Club suite rooms. These are quite impressive big suites with nice sea views.
    It's location is good, with commercials /food options easily accessible. There is a mall - JUSCO - right beside the hotel. If you venture to the west further, after 1km you can find Carrefour. The famous food street - Yun Xiao Lu - is within 5 mins taxi ride...

    However, the quality of facilities are not as impressive, such as a small shallow swimming pool curved shaped, mid-sized gyn with only 1 treadmill and no muscle stretcher, etc. You may also notice that bathroom suppliers are of bad quality.

    Unique Quality: Crown Plaza club floor guest can have breakfast at executive floor, with check-in/out services. In the room, hi-speed Internet is free of charge, water and 6 bottles of juices from the mini-bar, plus CNY 160 (USD20) free laundry per day.

    Directions: Center of new downtown

    Nice place, good location

    by

    Stayed for two days while visiting QingDao.

    Unique Quality: Bowling alley in basement was nice for our kids, as it rained much of our visit. This was a very nice bonus. Restaurants were okay - the Asia Cafe needed more waitstaff. Food everywhere very good, for the most part.

The Beaches

by myin

There are altogether 6 beaches in the Qingdao area and almost all are worth a visit (for varying reasons.) The No.1 Beach (diyi yuchang) is perhaps the best of the lot, although it is often packed out. It is the longest of the beaches, around 580 meters long, and, like most of the others, covered in fine yellow sand. The beach has some interesting features: a view of the distant Huiquan cape, with the waves lapping its red reefs, the nearby Luxun park, with its shade-providing pines and cypresses, and its weird, round changing huts.

For the more claustrophobic, No.2 (Dier yuchang) and No.3 (Disan yuchang) Beaches are probably a safer option; they are smaller, but less crowded. The No.3 beach, especially, has charm, with kite fliers and lovers scattered about. At the eastern end of the beach, on the hill, is the Huashi Lou, a former German governor's residence built in 1905, with fantastic architecture and decent views of the surrounding area.

The No. 6 Beach (Diliu yuchang), despite its popularity, is not really worth visiting for its beauty. It is mainly rockpools and dirty grayish sand. In the early morning the beach is filled with a profusion of tai ji practitioners, 70s tracksuit wearing joggers and fishermen. The walkway (Zhan qiao) and attached Huilan Pavilion (Huilange), the symbol of Qingdao (and its beer), are essential tourist destinations, although often packed with touts, vendors and visitors.

If you are really after the secluded beach experience then your only option, and a long haul, is to head for the golden sands of Yellow Island (Huangdao) . After a high speed ferry, (about 20 minutes), and a longer public bus (or shorter minibus) ride, you will arrive at the long golden beach (Jinsha Haitan) in Huangdao. Initial impressions can be misleading, as the entrance to the beach is filled with stalls and Chinglish speaking hecklers, but it is easy to get away from this. You will need a good day to fully appreciate this trip. The ferry leaves from the local ferry terminal (Qingdao lunduzhan) on the western side of Qingdao (down the road from the Friendship Hotel).

"Qingdao"

It was really surprising seeing a Christian Cathedral in China.

"Qingdao"

At the beach in Quingdao. I love the beach and didn't expect to be going to the beach in China in October so that was a nice surprise. Lovely beaches, but we were the only "Western" people there and a small boy came up to us and gave us some candy which I cherish.

"Qingdao"

This area was far away from the posh area where we were staying. I hope these people don't mind that I add their photo here on VT. Great contrasts in wealth in Quingdao. We got stuck in this area after dark, not being able to find a taxi.

"Qingdao"

The promenade close to the Shangri-La hotel, very busy and a lot of stalls selling all kinds of stuff and people flying kites.

"Qingdao"

The whole group went to a restaurant together and the waiters kept bringing more and more food - and then some more, we were getting frustrated as we couldn't eat it all and they were always bringing more. I have 5 photos of members of the group in frustration looking at all the food, but don't want to add their photo here without their permission as the expression on their faces is hilarious.

"Quingdao."

I changed my mind, I am adding one photo of the waiters bringing all this wonderful food, - and us not being able to eat all this food.

"Quingdao."

The view from the Shangri-La hotel.

"Qingdao"

This was beautifully made out of flower in the same street as the Shangri-La hotel. Not knowing any Chinese I have no idea what it means.
