The coastline and skyline of Qingdao

An old saying described Qingdao as a city of "red tiles green trees, blue sky and blue sea."

There is a large number of German-style buildings in Qingdao city centre, remarkable considering the German colonial period only lasted 16 years (1898–1914). The unique combination of German and Chinese architecture in the city centre, combined with German demographic roots and a large Korean expatriate population, gives Qingdao a distinct atmosphere.
