What can you say about Qingdao? I have spent months there in fact at one point we opened an office there! It is the home of the world famous “Qingdao ” beer but also the Olympic sailing village.
in the short season the place comes alive and there is a feeling of a carnival.
It is one of the most expensive places in the world to keep a yacht and the best way is to go down to the front and haggle with the sailing teams who out of season are sort of “not busy”
The huge red sculpture called the “wind” looks massive close up as the colours change every few seconds but from the sea it is a tiny landmark that guides the out of town sailor back to the harbour
