We are travelling around a bit and finally arrived in Tsingtao. So far I have to say that I am not overwhelmed. I had high expectations but these were crushed upon arrival at the train station.. The city-centre is full with construction sites (more than usual for a Chinese city) and even worse we had trouble to find a hotel.

Most hotels which are not one of these fancy high-class hotels do not want foreigners as guests. We ended up in a horrible place which got good reviews on Ctrip and forgot to mention that on their website.

What is their problem with外国人?

And does anybody know a proper hotel around the train station?

It is not only Qingdao, many hotels in second and third tier cities will not accept foreigners.

The reason simply is they do not have the temporary registration slips for the police.

Ah, that might be an explanation.

But since when small businesses care much about such regulations? Or is it only hotels?
