Where History Beckons

Qingdao is crammed full of coffee shops, restaurants and small bars along with lots of shopping areas, including a very cheap and lively night market. The city is divided into two parts, the old and new; the old has lots of interesting buildings of German architecture as well as some churches..

The teaching team here is very close and most weekends everyone meets up to spend the day at the beach, climb the local mountains or have a picnic in Zhongshan Park, which also has a sizable zoo. Of course, Qingdao is also home to its famous brewery and Beer Street, giving the city a relaxed and entertaining vibe not found anywhere else in China.
