Built in 1891, this man made pier stabs 440 meters (1,400 feet) out into Qingdao Bay, making it one of the city's most revered landmarks. The pier's tip is crowned with Huilan Pavilion, an eight-sided structure that has become a Qingdao symbol made famous by its use on Tsingtao beer labels. Vendors cram the pavilion's interior selling everything from souvenirs to ice cream. Close approximation to Beach Number Six, and Little Qingdao Isle make this a very popular tourist stop.
I was there in September of 2002! You can get a great view of Qingdao from the Zhangiao Pier. And, you can imagine the yachting competition that will take place in the waters around you during the 2008 Summer Olympics. Without yachts in the water, the Zhangiao Pier is a great place for people watching.
Qingdao: Qingdao: The architecture is definitely from Germany, although Qingdao is definitely not nearly as clean as Germany. The streets were a bit grimy (probably from the coal that is burned in the winter). I was in Qingdao for two days. I only saw one other westerner there which made my visit interesting. The millions of tourists who visit Qingdao must primarily be Chinese. Yes, bikinis can be seen at the beach although most women at the beach were more conservatively dressed. Tsingtao beer can be purchased throughout the city. The Tsingtao brewery is nearby.
In China, I mostly relied upon the Bank of China (BOC) ATM�s to withdraw cash (Yuan). However, it seemed like there were a lack of BOC ATM�s in Qingdao. I found one but it didn�t function. In the afternoon on my second day in Qingdao, I was down to my last Yuan note and feeling rather humble. Luckily, my train back to Beijing was soon to depart!
