Yantai Hill

Reviewed By ffrige - Shanghai

Get out of the city bustle and enjoy a relaxing (or romantic) walk through the grounds of this beaufitul setting. Keep in mind it is not a mountain, so no real climbing involved, although you can actually climb up the 11-story lighthouse for a wonderful view of the bay (air quality permitting...) and then walk all the way down to the waterfront.

Kunyu Mountain

Reviewed By Nanda33 - Bali

I was there for one month and I had no experience of martial arts before. The trainning is hard, I learned a lot of things and the environment is great of the surrounding nature and the people I met there. I had good experience after all but I'm writing my experience here because if I knew how things work maybe I would go to someplace else.
The masters staff the student if they break any rules or if they do not train hard enough. I was shocked when I saw this because they leave really bad bruises in the students. It's funny how they staff the students and then take them to the medical room. The excuse they use is: this is China that's how we were trainned. Thanks God I was never staffed but they threat you all the time: if you don't do this right I will staff you. They work with fear.
We also have these insane trainning called power stretching which is more like a torture. They push you both legs to force you to do a split and after you start crying they count till 10. I saw many people getting injuried from that.
There is also conditioning training that you hit each other to get used to the pain and you get bruises all over your body.
If you don't mind from all of that this is the perfect place to go.

Zhangyu Wine Cultural Museum

Reviewed By birdwithoutleg

The museum give and insight and also the history of wine making in China, which is very interesting and informative. At the end of the tour we get to taste 2 type of wine produce by Zhangyu winery, which is surprisingly nice. We also get to visit the over hundred years of wine cellar which is really cool.
The interpreter give very details and accurate explanation during the whole tour, a great thumb up.
The entrance ticket is however a little costly by China standard.

Yangma Island

Reviewed By KodoDrummer - Yekaterinburg, Russia

Yantai's Yangma Island, sometimes referred to as “Horse Island,” “Royal Horse-raised island,” and “Horse-breeding Island” (The latter being the translation of the Chinese name.), is 14.2 square kilometres of beautiful, natural scenery. The First Emperor of Qin bred horses on the island for his army. Thus, the reason behind the beautiful sculpture of the free running horses. This holiday resort island also has a bathing beach on the southerly side, a race track which also acts as an entertainment park, and seafood restaurants offering the best of fresh seafood . . . some likely caught by fishermen on the boats one can see on the waters surrounding the island.
I saw lots of local beachcombers with plastic buckets and containers. I assume they are collecting sealife for food.

The First Public Swimming Beach

Reviewed By Jason M - Iowa, United States

I enjoyed the wide, flat and clean beach. No problems with undertow or trash. Good for families, couples or tourists. There wasn't a great deal of amenities such as food stalls, etc. There are nearby businesses and restaurants but most are across the street.

Yantai Whale Shark Acquarium

Reviewed By Ellen G - Yantai, China

My kids love fish and sharks. They loved all sharks there, remembered all names and never got tired of visiting the acquarium. The only problem is that it is sort of loud there with the music and performance like everywhere else in China. Summer time it would be a little warm in there as if the AC doesnt work well.

Yantai Sports Park

Reviewed By hotelsvevia - Altamura, Italy

I live just across the street of this area, which is very large and absolutely not crowded, a rare thing in China. There are several facilities, as a huge swimming pool, a stadium and an archery field. The main use however is for calisthenics enthusiasts like me. There is literally a mile long road filled with bars, in all shapes and sizes. And it's all for you.

Yantai Zhangyu Group

Reviewed By Warrior2Warrior - Vienna, Austria

It's basically a winery, what makes it interesting is how the development of the winery went hand in hand with that of the region.
one of the founders stated that Yantai would grow through industrialization and it has sure happened.
it's a good place to go after a big meal and tour the museum
will I go again? Once is enough
