Qingdao! the Best Kept Secret in China

I've perhaps saved the best kept secret in China for very last photo sharing.  Spent the weekend in Qingdao and had a fantastic time. We took Lily with us. For your info, Qingdao is perhaps the most beautiful large city in China with its stunning coast-line and exceptionally clean air.  We visited:  the Pier; toured the harbor a on a speed boa, The Little Fish Hill; the Laoshan Famous Mountain; the boardwalk along the beach; the May 04 square; the Olympic sailing park; the Badaguan (eight scenic spots); and Underwater Sea World among others.  Qingdao is also unusual because of its influence of German, Korean and Japanese settlers. The beer which is most popular in China comes from the heritage of German immigrants in Qingdao. The contrast between the cleanliness of the Koreans and Japanese compared to the Chinese in Qingdao is interesting to observe.
