Qing Dao City Promotes Island Tourism

Qingdao in the Shandong Province on the eastern coast of China plans to focus on developing tourism to its nearby islands, as well as conserving the natural habitats found there. Island sightseeing, exploration and even vacations will be heavily promoted to nearby islands including Lingshan Island, Zhucha Island, and more. The tourism products will range from night sea tours to diving tours, to island adventures and even visits to see the naval equipment manufacturing that occurs in this area. These islands currently rely on the naval museum and national defense resources located there to promote educational travel.

In addition to the aforementioned activities, entertainment and leisure activities, meetings and conferences, spas, exquisite dining of local seafood and ecotourism will be bolstered to attract high-end visitors to islands of Qingdao. By 2016, Qingdao hopes to increase the number of visitors by 10% to approximately 83 million annual arrivals.
