As the country enters summer, beach tourism starts gaining momentum among tourists. Qingdao is one of many favorable coastal destinations in China. Although it can sometimes get foggy because of the hot weather, visitors still swarm to the seaside to seek some cool pleasure brought by the sea. There is just so much fun near the beach - sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling and diving, or you can just lie on the powdery white sand and enjoy doing nothing. Apart from Qingdao, there are a bunch of other beach resorts in China, such as Dalian, Sanya and Xiamen. They are all as good, just pick the nearest option.
