Qingdao, also referred to as Tsingtao, is a key city in the Chinese province of Shandong and is a major seaport, industrial center and naval base. Situated on the western side of Yellow Sea, Qingdao, whose name literally means “Green Island” is one of China’s most important cities and has the highest GDP among any other city in Shandong.
The perfect combination of old and new, Qingdao is one of the rare cases of a city that has evolved into a modern metropolis without sacrificing all of its past and heritage. In fact, there are still remnants of the concession-era, particularly when the city was colonized by Germany, found all over the city – from its cobbled streets and hillside villa to historic German architecture.
Qingdao has established itself as a significant business district as well as a tourist destination.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
