Badaguan Scenic Area Tours

Stroll through Badaguan Scenic Area, and you might forget you're in China. This breathtaking neighborhood on the Qingdao coast has a colonial past, and is now home to the architectural styles of more than 20 countries, including Great Britain, France, Germany, Spain, and Denmark. The stunning effect of European mansions and villas peeking out from the neighborhood's verdant, waterfront land puts Badaguan at the top of the list for photographers, nature-lovers, and first-time visitors to Qingdao.

Tour the former German protectorate (1897-1914) on a day trip away from the city's busy Central Business District to experience the tranquility of Badaguan. Gardens and courtyards boast varied greenery and flowering plants, so there's always something blooming no matter the season. Don't miss No. 2 Bathing Beach, the stretch of sand that fronts the neighborhood, which was once a favored swimming spot of Chairman Mao.

Practical Info

Badaguan Scenic Area is accessible by public bus, alighting at Wushengguan Road Station. The neighborhood itself is free to explore, but you’ll have to pay a small fee to enter the Hua Shi Villa.

Did you know? The name ‘Badaguan’ translates to ‘eight passes,’ named after the eight avenues that originally passed through the neighborhood (now there are 10).
