    jian shuo, you shown us a picture of classic street light fall in disrepair, I hope this is not the general attitude of people in Tsingdao towards the structures and buildings left by German and Japan before the war.

    A historical city? A modern city? A complex city? A simple city? Stephen’s comment gave me these questions.

    Qingdao is a historical city. It has many buildings left from 100 years ago.

    It is a modern city. It is a city for sailing, and it has famous brands in China. The new district is very modern.

    It is a simple city, since the life there is easy and the pace is slow. The Tsingtao beer is as cheap as bottled water.

    It is a very nice city.

    Thanks, JS! How interesting that is!

    I wonder what are those “river system” or “waterways” for? Irrigation? Fish farming? After all, I did not expect to see this in the northern part of China.

    They seem like some beautiful posters or advertisment backgrounds, really nice! You can choose one for the background

    I lived in Qingdao in the mid 90’s… A wonderful city for an expat new to China. Loved your photos… were some of the city taken from the Dongfeng Hotel? I stayed there for my first three weeks in China and the views look so familiar. Looks like the Number 1 Beach is as busy as ever. Thanks for rekindling some very fond memories of a wonderful time in my life….
