As the Chinese summer school holidays haven’t started yet, there are still very few tourists from the many inland provinces of mainland China that don’t have a coast. However, the beaches for which Qingdao is famous are already starting to become busy with people playing in the sand and sea.

Unfortunately, it seems that not only are BBQs not allowed, but dogs aren’t permitted to enjoy a stroll along the beach.
