Day 1 Arrival in Qingdao
Zhan Bridge
Zhan Bridge
Our professional guide will meet you outside the arrival hall at the airport or the railway station and it is recommended that you arrive in Qingdao before 2:00 pm.

After checking in at the hotel, you will be accompanied to the first stop of your Qingdao 3 days tour package, Zhan Bridge - the landmark of the City with 400-meter-long and 10-meter-wide. It is extended into the sea from the prosperous Zhongshan Road in the urban area. After that, we can hang out at Xiaoyushan Park. Although it is just 60 meters above the sea level, it functions as the best point to overlook the Zhan Bridge and other famous scenic spots. Ascending the park's main building - the three-storey Lanchao Pavilion, you could get a marvelous view of azure sky, blue sea, green trees, red tiles and yellow walls.

Facing the Yellow Sea on two sides, this mountain spans a coastline of 87 kilometers which enhances the charming natural sceneries of it. It is also noted for its Taoist culture for a long time where lots of ancient Taoist buildings are left. Looking around Longtan Waterfall, you can see a narrow and rapid stream running through the steep cliff and rushing into the green pond. Besides, Taiqing Palace is the oldest with a history of more than 2,000 years as well as the largest, covering an area of 30,000 square meters. The whole palace consists of three parts: Sanqing Hall in the middle, Sanguan Hall to the east and Sanhuang Hall to the west. Today's last spot is Qingdao Beer Museum where you can know the culture and making process of Qingdao beer and then have a taste of it.

I am arriving late at night at Qingdao Airport.
Please tell me which shuttle bus line will take me to Lidu Hotel Apartment, No. 93 Middle Xianggang Road, Shinan District.
Will I need to use the metro or will the bus take me directly to my hotel?
If I will need to use the metro, what time at night does the metro close down?
Thank you,
Robert Dawson

Upon landing, you are suggested to take shuttle bus no.701 to East Coach Station first. This bus line will operate until the last flight arrival. Thus you can catch it. Then you can take the taxi to the destination directly. The cab fare is around CNY30.

hello. i fly Singapore-Qingdao(100 hours)-Beijing(3 hours in airport)-France.
Can i use 144 free transit without visa?

No. Your itinerary requires a Chinese tourist (L) visa. You are not eligible for 144 hour visa free transit because you are traveling through two different Chinese transit zones in a row and you are not eligible for 24 hour TWOV because your entire transit time is longer than 24 hours.

I assume that your M visa has limited number of entries and you don't want to use them because of some future purposes, right? In this case, you are definitely allowed to use 144 hours visa free transit in Qingdao and your itinerary is definitely eligible for this convenience. Just keep in mind that you should approach, upon your landing in Qingdao, to relevant counter and explain them that you intend to aplly for 144 hours visa free transit and not to use your M visa. This will be allowed, don't worry. Just have your tickets and accommodation booking in hard copy upon your arrival.
