All about Qingdao

This former German colony gains world-wide fame from the horribly mangled name of Tsingtao Beer (pronounced the same as the city)—although not every China traveler knows its origins, they're almost certainly familiar with the beer. Qingdao is renowned for both lovely sandy beaches and its historic German architecture, reflected even in some of this northern seaside town's newer buildings.
