The various styles of clothing stores are located in the Longshan Underground Market (Long Shan Da Xia Shang Ye Jie) below Xinhaoshan Park. They are your best places to shop for clothes.

Tea is also a popular shopping item in Qingdao, especially the Taoist Laoshan Variety, which is presumed to be flourishing on the natural spring waters of that holy mountain.

Besides, Qingdao is a seaside city, so marine products are featured, such as seashell carvings and seafood products. At the same time, the variety of Korean products from the stores around the city will absolutely offer tourists a chance to get a Korean experience in Qingdao.



Qingdao embraces the ocean from its three sides, thus making it one of the major production areas of seafood products in China. Tourists who want to taste some fresh seafood can go to Nanshan Seafood Market, which can be reached by taking bus No. 30.
