Qingdao: A Seaside Getaway
Qingdao is the top holiday destination for the Chinese, over 40 million tourists visit this sunny hotspot every year. The Green Island as it is also known, has become a business opportunity for tourism, with organised daytrips on coaches enabling many people to go to the seaside for the first time. Many won’t see the sea until they reach adulthood.
The beaches of Qingdao host a Miss Qingdao beauty contest every year; winning the crown and the title is a real key to success and a window of opportunities.
In the early hours, the beaches are reminiscent of L.A and its culture for body perfection. Hundreds flock to the gyms every morning to sculpt their bodies and improve their fitness. Welcome to the biggest seaside destination in China.
