Had a most enjoyable walk along the Pier, to the building on the point. Sadly, we were not allowed upstairs to see the views. There was a good crowd here and plenty of photography opportunities. Great views across the bay and of Qingdao Hill

This was our first stop after conducting days of business. What a way to immerse into Chinese culture. The sightseeing was wonderful and there were so many families enjoying the water. I will always remember this stop on our journey.
