QINGDAO 青島 , China - German heritage, seafood and beer

Qingdao is located in Shandong province, pretty much exactly halfway between Beijing and Shanghai. The city was also the capital of the German colony of ‘Kiautschou Bay’ between 1898 and 1914 and many historic buildings all over the city date back from that time. It is also known as the Chinese seafood and beer capital and the famous Tsingtao brewery is located in the city.
Today Qingdao is a bustling city of 3.5 million (administrative region 8.5 million) and beside hosting the sailing competitions of the Beijing Olympics in 2008, it was also named China’s most livable city in 2009.
Location in China:


All photos were taken in October 2010.

Wow, what a fantastic showcase. It looks like a very interesting city! That first picture is the perfect representation of the city by the looks of it with the old German architecture in the foreground and the towering modern skyscrapers behind it.

Qingdao's urbanists are barbarians:

When I was living there in the Nineties, Qingdao was the best-looking city in China, and now, it's the same concrete shit as everywhere there.
No difference Chongqing, Shanghai or Qingado.

Qingdao seems a great, a bit European looking city!
