Touring Qingdao

Qingdao is a wonderful place to visit. For those who are up for a little exploring, here’s the best picks from your local hosts. All of the following are located in walking distance from the Shangri-La Hotel.  


May 4th Square

May 4th Square is one of the most iconic and historic destinations in Qingdao. It’s only 3 blocks from the hotel and is the ideal spot for photos of the sea and the skyline. At night, light shows go off about every 30 minutes on the skyscrapers nearby. May 4th Square is the ideal place to watch the show, although it can be very crowded at night.

MixC Mall is next door to the Shangri-La hotel. It is the largest mall in Qingdao and includes a variety of cuisines and attractions! Students in our school recommend trying out some of the following in MixC Mall while you’re in Qingdao:
