Overall Satisfaction:
"great"
This was a journey of leisure as well knowing about the history of Taoism, in Laoshan Mountain. My guide told me a lot of interesting stories about Taoism. However I was more interested in the beach time, absolutely enjoy.

Overall Satisfaction:
"a tiny city"
As described it was a journey of escaping as well as a journey of exploring. My family had a great vacation in Qingdao, a beautiful coastal city. I was so impressed by the architecture style, similar to European style but not exactly the same. Compare to other northern cities Qingdao was quite clean.
