Built in 1061, the sixth year of Emperor Jiayou's reign in the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127), the Penglai Pavilion is a famous coastal tourist site in eastern China's Shandong Province. It is seated on the cliff of Danya Mountain close to the sea in the north of Penglai City.
It is said that Penglai was the place that Emperor Qin Shi Huang looked for the elixir of life, and the place where the great Emperor Wu of the Western Han Dynasty paid his sacred visit.

Beijing to Qingdao by bullet train
By MUDDIEDKNEES | 4/13/2008 12:42:21 AM

Originally, we were planning to fly (round trip tickets for 2 cost around RMB 2400, highly discounted at, but I decided to take the new bullet train called China Railway High-speed (CHR) 2.

The train takes around 5 1/2 hrs. Compared to the 1-hr something flight, it still takes much longer, but is much more convenient and comfortable. Considering that you don't have to check-in an hour in advance and take two 40-min taxi rides to and from airports, the train option is actually very attractive. Currently, the main Qingdao train station is under renovation, so they use the Sifang station, which is around 20 mins away. However, most Chinese cities, including Qingdao and Beijing, normally have conveniently located train stations.

The premium train seats cost us less than RMB1400 (round trip for two). The seats were wide as airline business class seats and were super comfortable. The food can be slightly expensive and the choices not so good, so bring food with you. A quick stop at our favorite fast food place right before the train ride was all we needed.

Qingdao Sangrila Night Club
By SHIVAH | 2/12/2008 4:54:16 PM

One of the most interesting things I found in Qingdao was the night life. At the Shangrila Hotel on Hong Kong Middle Road on Wed. nights there is a "Salsa Night".

A live Columbian Band plays live music! I was amazed at how well people danced salsa! The atmosphere was happy and the people were very friendly. There is no cover charge and the dancing is incredible! The drinks are good too! it's a must see!

Travelling from the Airport to City Centre
By GHOST | 10/14/2007 7:24:58 AM

There's really no need for getting expensive private taxis from the airport into town. There is a very good and reliable airport shuttle bus service that leaves every 15 minutes for only RMB 15 (as of Oct 2007).

You will find the ticket booth for the buses as soon as you exit the airport building - can't miss it! Destinations are written in English and Chinese. There's two routes, but most people will want the one going into town, ending at the Haitian Hotel. From there you can easily catch a taxi on the street to your final destination.

The other alternative is the regular taxi service. Ignore the people who approach you inside the airport (mutter 'bu yao' and walk with purpose to the nearest exit door). Go outside and you'll see the taxi rank - they are metered taxi's. However, you will need your destination written down in Chinese as the taxi drivers generally only speak Mandarin.

Taxis into the city centre will cost you around RMB 80-100, with another RMB 15 for the expressway if used. There are no surcharges for the airport or for luggage. There are 2 types of taxi. The meter starting price is often displayed on the rear passenger window: RMB 7 or RMB 10 (the latter generally being a nicer, more comfortable taxi).

Finally, always get a receipt (fa piao) as it lists the taxi licence number if you should have any cause for complaint or leave something behind.

Yantai western bar
By LURVEBUGXXX | 4/3/2007 7:19:48 PM

I didn't get to see all that many nightclubs and bars in my time in Yantai, but my favourite was a pool hall/bar called AliBaba in Xiang yang jie (nan tou). It's run by a Westerner and his chinese wife, and I must say, almost every westerner I met in Yantai was a fan! It has a large pool hall with around 20 pool tables for those who want a quiet chilled out game, and in another room a bar with dance floor for a more up beat social scene. There are many regulars as well as those only in Yantai for a short time so you are never short of a friendly (slightly drunken) conversation!
