Second Beach: swimming resort Second Beach and Badaguan line up with each other, which makes Qingdao’s typical red brick and green trees, with blue seas and skies a beautiful scenery. Second Beach is smaller than the No. 1 Bathing beach. It has fewer tourists and a better environment. Also the water here is cleaner, with small and slow waves, making it a summer swimming resort. Chairman Mao who’s fond of swimming loves this beach, and went swimming here several times. There are also lots of cobblestones on the west side of the beach, where lots of swimmers come to pick up. Since there’s a lot of reef in the area, it’s good for finding seashells, and seeing lots of living creatures such as hermit crabs and starfish.

Qingdao Hanbi House7-star hotel in China! Seeing it, it's better to miss it. It's better to follow it. Life is just a journey. You pass me, I pass you, then practice each and move forward. Hanbi Building is located in the beautiful Huangdao District of Qingdao. The hotel cost 3 billion yuan. The most intuitive feeling for the hotel is the vastness. The hotel is surrounded by the sea on three sides and the semicircular coastline is like a cornucopia. Exclusive 270 degree pure sea view. As the first super-star Wenchuang resort hotel in mainland China, Qingdao Hanbilou Hotel highlights the cultural connotation. The core of the architectural design of Qingdao Hanbi Building is minimalist and zen style. In order to conform to the land of Qilu, the Confucian culture is the keynote of design, and the design concept is modest and humble. The current travellers, first of all, love to take some photo punches. First, I share a few photo guides of Hanbilou. The first recommendation is the private beach. Only the talents who stay at the hotel are qualified to go. The sand on the beach is delicate. A white dress has become the first choice for the public. The tide is changing every day and it is safe. The hotel has four types of restaurants, Chinese, French, Japanese and buffet. The favorite of Japanese beans is Japanese and buffet. The second recommended is the infinity pool on the first and second floors. The calm lake reflects the building and the sky, contracting a whole sea, swimming in the pool and running to the corner. . The sunny aisle is also a newly discovered punching place. The sun shines through the pillars and forms a mottled light on the ground. People stand in the past 85 long shots.
