| Badaguan Scenic Area
Badaguan Scenic Area (八大关风景区) is the best place to showcase the red walls, green trees, blue sea and azure sky views of Qingdao. It is a major tourist-attraction close to the coast of Qingdao.
It's made up of eight streets named after the eight great military forts of the ancient times. Along the streets are many classic European houses built when Qingdao was a German protectorate (1897-1914). Its atmosphere is unlike any other place in China, with large, grassy lawns, wide streets, and minimal traffic. Many of its residents are retired Communist Party and military officials. Ba Da Guan is bordered on the west by No.1 Bathing Beach and on the east by No.3 Beach. Hua Shi Lou, a stone, Russian-built home, is located on No.2 Beach in Ba Da Guan. Chiang Kai-shek used to live in Hua Shi Lou therefore it's also called General House by local people.
