The red roofs, green trees, blue sea, and azure sky form a bright and colourful picture of
Qingdao. The city is sometimes known as the Switzerland of the Orient
.

Qingdao, a beautiful seaside city, is located in the southeast part of Shandong Province.

For thirty three years, up to 1945, Qingdao was a colony of Germany and Japan. Thus,
Qingdao has a great deal of European architecture. This foreign architecture -a remnant
of the colonial past- now beautifies this seaside city.

The red roofs, green trees, blue sea, and azure sky form a bright and colorful picture of
Qingdao. The city is sometimes known as the Switzerland of the Orient.

Surrounded by the sea on three sides, Qingdao attracts many tourists with its charming
seascape. Sights like the Eight Passes Villas, the Zhan Bridge, Wusi Square, Mt.
Laoshan, will help you remember Qingdao. Just walking on the sand and listening to the
surf breaking on the beach becomes enjoyable.

Qingdao offers food with distinctive flavors--especially seafood. So take this chance to
enjoy the delicious seafood of Qingdao. Also, Qingdao is the home of the famous
Qingdao (Tsingtao) Beer. Have a bottle of pure Qingdao Beer right here in Qingdao!

The Qingdao Municipal Government recognizes the importance of the tourism industry
and has further plans to develop tourism in Qingdao. To enhance the tourism industry,
Qingdao now sponsors the Qingdao International Beer Festival, the Qingdao
International Sea Festival, Beach Culture Festival, the Sea Affection Festival, and the
Summer of Qingdao Festival.

As the co-host city for Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, Qingdao hosted the sailing
