It was a really nice place to take a walk and beside the pier was a nice beach! It was a bit crowded there but you still had time to stop and enjoy the view.

Well-worth a visit, there is a shallow and rocky area next to the pier where many people catch crabs and shellfish. The building itself is not that magnificent but the locals love to take pictures of it.

It's a good spot to see Qingdao from the seaside. But it is very crowded on shiny days, so be prepared. Good walk, good views. Loved it at night expecially.

It was wonderful to be part of the end of Chinese New Year celebrations on Zhanqiao Pier on a cold day in February. The pier was absolutely full of Chines families with very few Westerners. It felt much like Boxing Day in the UK where...More
