Catch a glimpse of Qingdao's old areas

(chinadaily.com.cn) | 2022-05-13

Qingdao's old areas are a must-visit, where visitors can indulge in the city's symbolic picturesque scenery that features red roof tiles, green trees, clear skies, and the blue sea.

In recent years, Qingdao has been ramping up efforts to protect cultural heritage sites and conserve traditional culture while renovating the city's old areas.

Measures have been implemented to improve local residents' living conditions and protect historical and cultural deposits, so that history and modernity can blend perfectly.

The city is also working to maintain the original features of Liyuan buildings, which are time-honored architectural structures built in the early 20th century. They retain the spatial composition of Chinese quadrangles (siheyuan), and at the same time, utilize Western technology.
