About Qingdao: The first impression visitors get of Qingdao is one of a beautiful city with red tiles, green trees, blue oceans, bluer sky and the Taoist holy site of Laoshan. Qin Shi Huang once visited here to view the sea, Xu Fu made the long journey from here to Dongpu and this is where the May Fourth Movement began. European countries have all left their own mark here, including an annual International Beer Fest, so there are many well-preserved old buildings combining German and Asian features. This is one of northern China's rare seaside resort towns that is also replete with a romantic artistic flavor. Qingdao's seafood and beer are enchanting to visitors. The Tsingdao Beer Museum and brewery is a huge attraction.
