For a leisurely shopping trip in Qingdao, China, or just a pleasant stroll, head to Daxue Road, a collegiate boulevard that leads to the seaside. On this street – the oldest in all Qingdao – you’ll find yourself walking beneath trees and red tile roofs, with old junk shops and cool purveyors of handmade crafts appearing along the way. Rest at one of its many cafes and take in the slow life, Qingdao-style.
