An extension of the road into the sea. It is just about 0.3 miles from Qingdao Railway Station. Whether travelers come to Qingdao by train or by ship, Zhan Bridge, a Qingdao landmark, welcomes them at their first stop in this beautiful coastal city. The locals say that you can not know the real Qingdao if you have not gone to the Zhan Bridge, Originally built in 1891 as a naval pier, Zhan Bridge can be regarded as a construction as old as Qingdao City. Now, Zhan Bridge becomes a famous scenic spot thanks to the renovation in recent years. It is 440-meter (1444-foot) long and 10-meter (33-foot) wide with giant granite supports. Lotus-shaped lamps provide illumination and decoration. At the south end of the bridge is a Chinese style octagon pavilion standing in contrast to European buildings in the background.
Badaguan Scenic Area
A famous picturesque sanitarium area in China, located in the east of Qingdao city, Shandong Province. This place used to have eight avenues that were named after eight famous passes in China. Thus, it was named Badaguan, which means eight passes. After the People’s Liberation, two more avenues were built in the area and there are now actually ten avenues. However, its name still remains the same.What makes Badaguan so popular is not just its natural scenery, but also its garden-like villas and foreign-styled buildings. Badaguan Scenic Area used to be a place where people from more than twenty countries, such as Russia, Britain, France, Germany, the United States of America, Denmark, Greece, Spain, Switzerland, Japan and etc., constructed buildings in each of their unique national styles. After the People’s Liberation, the government repaired the entire area and its buildings, symbolizing Badaguan’s significance as one of the most important sanitaria in China. Many leaders of the Chinese Communist Party and foreign friends of China have stayed here for rehabilitation or simply, for pleasure.

We also tried many yummy seafood there ! really cheap and tasty ! Also went to Stone Old Man ( shi lao ren) , No2. beach, Bear street ! but haven’t got pics yet ! this part is in Rachel’s camera , pls be patient to wait for couple day !
Something i have to say , the beaches r not nice in Qingdao, very dirty and too much algae in it ! Yesterday we went to the beach in Shi Lao Ren, heard it is a new city center in Qingdao, but when i was playing in the sea, i saw the women’s napkin in it and thousands of plastic bags . so disgusting! I love the beaches in Sanya more ! The only thing i can do there is lying on the beach, at least the sun was great for me ! haha ! Mt. Laoshan is just normal mountain, nothing special for me, even it’s famous there ! Zhan Qiao is also not interesting . but it’s landmark of Qingdao that’s why we went there ! the only place i really love is Badaguan ! If you want to go to Qingdao, You should go to Badaguan and have a look , really nice place ! If I have enough money, i will buy a villa there ( just for dreaming, hehe )
