Living in Qingdao

Qingdao is a ‘second-tier’ Chinese city of 8 million people on the coast of the Yellow Sea. The city’s downtown area spreads 30km along the coast, dotted with beaches, all fully accessible by boardwalk. Qingdao hosted the Sailing Regatta during the 2008 Beijing Olympics, as well as regular international and regional sailing events.

Qingdao has a thriving economy, home to one of Asia’s largest shipping ports, the world’s biggest manufacturer of home appliances (Haier), and China’s most famous beer brand (Tsingtao). It is routinely selected as one of Asia’s top three ‘Most Livable Cities’ in expat surveys. There are international eateries, groceries, cinemas, beaches, parks, and other entertainment within 1km of the school. The cost of living is significantly lower than in cities like Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen.

QAIS is located less than 1km from the beach, about 5km from downtown, and 30 minutes drive from Laoshan Natural Reserve. Guoxin Stadium, with two Olympic-sized swimming pools, a diving pool, gym, a spinning room, fitness classes, and basketball and volleyball courts is in walking distance from the school, while biking and hiking trails of Fu Shan Mountains are just across the road.
