Weihai Travel Guide
China Travel Guide - Travel in Shandong

weihai
Weihai (Wēihǎi 威海) is a prefecture-level city in eastern Shandong province, People's Republic of China. It is the easternmost prefecture-level city in the province and a major seaport. Between 1898-1930, the town was a British colony. Weihai was not developed in the way that Hong Kong, the other British colony in China, was developed, because Weihai fell into Germany's sphere of influence. It was largely used as a naval station and a sanatorium. During the colonial period it was known as Weihaiwai or the Weihai Garrison (Wēihǎi Wèi 威海卫), and sometimes as Port Edward. Weihai borders Yantai (yān tái 烟台) to the west and the Yellow Sea to the east.

    Mr, xiānshēng 先 生
    Mrs, fūren 夫 人
    Miss , xiǎojiě 小 姐.
