Shandong Travel Guide


Shandong (Shāndōng 山东) is a coastal province of eastern People's Republic of China. Its abbreviation is Lu (lǔ 鲁), after the state of Lu (lǔ guó 鲁国) that existed here during the Spring and Autumn Period (chūn qiū shí qī 春秋时期).

The name Shandong literally means "mountain's east", which refers to the province's location east of the Taihang Mountains (tài háng shān 太行山). The province is located in the lower reaches of the Yellow River and extends out to sea in the form of the Shandong Peninsula.

A common nickname for Shandong is Qilu (qí lǔ 齐鲁), after the state of Lu and state of Qi that existed here during the Spring and Autumn Period.

Weihai Travel Guide

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.
