Huangdao Business Directory
In 2014 the Qingdao district of Huangdao merged with the Qingdao satellite city Jiaonan to create “Huangdao”. This is the newest and fastest growing districts in the city of Qingdao. This seaside zone is quickly becoming North China’s top holiday destination boasting a 7-Star Hotel (Lalu), several international brand 5-Star Hotels along with at least two major theme resorts still under construction.
This zone is blessed with silver and golden tinted beaches that run the entire length of the coast from Qingdao’s city proper all the way down to Rizhao city in the south of Shandong province with lots of tourist destinations along the way.
As a foreigner that has lived here for over ten years experiencing this growth has been something else. Unfortunately the, literally thousands of new buildings, resorts and hotels are still under construction and still very few foreign services available. Below is the list of most commonly used services by the rather small foreign community in Huangdao.
