Qingdao, a beautiful city surrounded by the sea on three sides, is located in the southeast part of Shandong Province, China. September in Qingdao has a very pleasant weather, and just walking on the sand and listening to the surf breaking on the beach gives you an enjoyable experience. The red roofs, green trees, blue sea, and azure sky paint a bright and colorful picture of Qingdao; while the Eight Passes Villas, Zhan Bridge, Wusi Square, and Mt. Laoshan form a unique and historic image of Qingdao. Qingdao, a city full of hospitality as frank and hearty as the sea, attracts many tourists with its charming seascape. Come and enjoy countless fascinating experiences, and take away memories that are uniquely Qingdao. More information can be found at or
