How to Plan Yantai Tour
Generally, a classic Yantai tour takes at least 2 days (including arrival and departure days). If you arrive in Yantai in the morning, you can spend an afternoon immersing yourself in the legend of Eight Immortals Crossing the Sea in Penglai Pavilion. On the next day, it is recommended to first visit quaint Yantai Hill Park which is well-preserved with stone paths, leafy gardens and some other architectures, and then explore Chinese wine in Changyu Wine Culture Museum before you leave. If you have more time, you can have a relaxing stay in the beaches of Yantai, like Yantai Gold Beach, No. 1 Beach, No. 2 Beach, etc.
In fact, Yantai is always traveled with other cities in Shandong's coastline, including Qingdao and Weihai. It is really worthwhile to spend 2 days savoring Qingdao highlights, like Badaguan Scenic Resort, Qingdao Beer Museum, Laoshan Mountain etc., and visit beautiful Chengshantou Scenic Area and Liugong Island in Weihai.
Seascape is just a small piece of charming Shandong. If you want to add Chinese traditional culture savory into your trip, we strongly suggest you visit Mount Tai and Qufu. Mount Tai is the first UNESCO World Natural & Cultural Heritage site while Qufu is the hometown of Confucius. Spending another 2~3 days visit these two destinations will deliver you an unforgettable experience of Chinese culture discovery.
