Getting There & Away

From Qīngdǎo, red double-decker sightseeing buses (one stop/unlimited ¥10/30) stop at sights along the water going east to Yǎngkǒu (仰口; departing 8am to 3pm, returning 2pm to 3pm), and go directly to Dàhédōng (大河东; departing 9am to 3pm, returning 1pm to 5pm) and Běijiǔshuǐ (北九水; departing 8.40am, returning 3pm). Another option is bus 304 (¥7, two hours, from 6.30am), which picks up at the Zhàn Qiáo stop by No 6 Bathing Beach and ends at Dàhédōng. Private tour buses to Láo Shān (return from ¥40) also ply Qīngdǎo’s streets from 6am onwards but stop at ‘sights’ on the way to the mountain and back, so are the slower option.
