Shandong Province

Visit Shandong province China

In July 2009 I embarked on a three-week tour around Shandong Province in eastern China. It was my first time traveling in the country, a magical trip that turned out to be a real assault on the senses. This was long before I’d even thought of becoming a travel blogger, so it was a real challenge to cobble together the images needed for a series of My 5s. But I got there in the end, more or less! Take a look at my articles on:

Jinan

Qingdao

Qufu

Tai’an

Yantai

Zhujiayu

I’ve also written some short stories about my Shandong escapades:
