A historical mansion neighborhood near Qingdao’s coastline, Badaguan is made up of eight streets, each named after a great military ancient China fort.

Many of the architects’ names are inscribed on the wall, making the search for an architectural story a fun part of your adventure. Badaguan has always been a popular site for wedding photos as it’s bordered by Qingdao’s No. 1 and No. 3 Beach respectively on the west and east-ends.
