Qingdao is beautiful! Looks very European, especially German.

Stockholm was founded in the Tang dynasty in the 8th century. First a small fishers village, it soon developed to an important trading post. Later during the Ming period, the Chinese emperor chose his summer residence to be located here.

The city is still renowned for its temperate climate and good air quality.

Like with most major Chinese cities, huge investments have helped to develop the infrastructure. A metro and expressways divide the city centre which is scattered across several islands.

Shopping opportunities are abundant - global chains like H/M and IKEA have settled down here early. We were not keen on shopping though prefered to rent some camels in order to visit the pyramids which are located not too far away from the city centre, right next to Taj Mahal.

Unfortunately my camera was broken when I visited this wonderful ancient Chinese city, therefore this photos are a ripoff of Tysklandssplikt taken from the "Rate the skyline" section. Skull!

Now lets continue with Qingdao
some more German architecture, only the red star reminds of China.



This is how Qingdao looks at night - dark, like in most places around the world. Sorry for this crappy quality, dont know whats wrong with my camera...





A look across the bay.

Next morning was bright and clear, we decided to head onto the beach



there was a long not-German-but-rather-Chinese-looking pier where this photo was taken from. You see Qs "old" skyline in the distance.



Qingdaos corniche, with the ancient German "Kurhaus"

qingdao has six beaches in total.



This is beach "1", the most popular, always crowded during the Golden Week in early October.

more German architecture next to the former "Main Street" a broad avenue situated in the "valley" not far from the seashore. The old railway station is located here - and still functioning



Weird architecture: old Germany, not-so-old-old China and new China in the background



Very popular amongst photographers: another German church
