The red artistic torch at the May Fourth Square may look touristy but not many of us knew of her historical significance. In fact, the Square was the first site in the whole of China where the May Fourth movement erupted in 1919. The First...More

The May the Fourth monument represents a Red, anti-imperial whirlwind rising up to sweep Japanese colonialists out of Qingdao, as happened in 1922. While this little-known episode of history is locally important, it isn't something which will be particularly significant for most foreign visitors. Mind...More

Its big. Its red. That's it really. Nice place to walk to but only if you want a walk destination. Not worth a special trip.

I walked for hours in and around the area May Fourth Square lining the beach , and the experience was simply breathtaking. I never found so much of peace as much I did here. The monument is of great significance and it stands tall :)

Why should you go there? Just because all people coming to Qingdao do and take a picture there. Nothing to be seen, nothing outstanding there. If you do rollerblades it has quite nice territory for you - but there are so many other and nicer...More

Beautiful place to visit. Tucked into the CBD of Qingdao. Can see many families enjoying their afternoons by flying kites or just enjoying the scenery. Also within walking distance of the Olympic Sailing Center. Well worth the visit. Many restaurants (Chinese and Western) nearby.
