Qingdao, Shandong Province. China. June 2020.
Qingdao fell under the German occupation in 1898 before Japan took over in 1914. Despite its short reign, Germans invested a lot into the city's architecture. To this day, as you walk through the streets, you can see the European styled influence all over the city. I took an opportunity to explore the beautiful city, the beaches, and empty tourist streets. I spent a week there and the local people and the cultural atmosphere of Qingdao has left a long lasting positive impression.
