Beautiful German architecture still found in this part of Qingdao, which was used to be a German enclave until 1919. Finally saw the place where Tsingtao beer is brewed, which my friends in China enjoyed so much in drinking.

Very interesting tour. Worth a visit. Be careful choosing a restaurant on the street where the brewery is situated because the they tried to rip us off for lunch with poor food and overcharging. Unfortunately can't give the name of the restaurant.

Lots of atmosphere, great fun, but I have never seen so many people vomiting in the night time. I do not think the locals are used to so much beer.
