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

May Fourth Square is an easy meeting point for visitors travelling by foot, bicycle or Metro. It’s a relaxed area with lots of families enjoying the sea front area.

It is park by the sea. Worth a visit if you are staying nearby. Seniors and children have activities in the park vicinity on the weekend I visited.

Also known as Wusi Guangchang in memorizing the May Fourth Movement. Nothing much to see and to do here. Perhaps just for you as visitor to take a memorable photo and check in at here in order to prove your arrival at Qingdao.
