Cruises To Qingdao

Although Qingdao has been settled for 6,000 years, thirty of those years were under German rule, so the bustling metropolis is filled with European architecture. The influence is so apparent, in fact, that the city is known as the Switzerland of the Orient. Make the most of this stunning seaside city by relaxing at the largest bathing beach in Asia, the clear-watered "Number One Bathing Beach." View the entire region from atop Mt. Laoshan, or stroll through the magical Eight Passes Villas - a striking exhibit of global architecture. Take in the day with a beer at Tsingtao Brewery, the largest brewery and most famous beer exporter in the country.
