Hi I'm Zhendong, you can also call me Steven. Qingdao is a beautiful costal city that has a number of great beaches, fresh seafood, world known Tsingtao Beer, cool climate, booming economy, and both skyscrapers in the downtown area and historic European buildings in the old town.
I could speak fluent English. I own a small translation company and also do the short-term serviced apartment rental business. Airbnb is one of the online presence for my apartment promotion. Of all the similar websites, with language of Chinese or English, I got to say Airbnb is my favorite, because I feel the exciting and pleasure to host people from all around the world.I'll do my best to make your trip easier.
As more and more foreigners are becoming my guests, I find there is a need to tell you more about the transportation so that I don't have to individually send you messages on Airbnb. All my apartments listed are in Wanda Plaza, No.112, Yanji Road. That is about 20 kilometers away from the Airport or 7 kilometers away from the railway station. As foreigners don't have Chinese SIM cards and therefore can't contact me by phone. Here is how you can reach me. If you come to Qingdao by air, you can take airport bus 1 or otherwise called bus 701 (get (email hidden) Building广电大厦, then take a taxi, about 1 kilometers away to your apt) or airport bus 2 or otherwise called bus 702( get off at Sifang Hotel四方大酒店) and then take a taxi (about 4 kilometers). You can come to my office to get the key, it's Room 2816, Business Tower A, Wanda Plaza, No.112, Yanji Road. You apt will be in Tower A or Tower B or Residential Building 1 of Wanda.If you take a train to Qingdao, you can take Bus 307 or 320 and get off at the Archive Station (档案馆）or just take a taxi (about 20 yuan). Let me know your arrival time so that I can be in my office when you get here. Sending me messages via BNB whether you are in Qingdao (when you have the access to the Internet) or not will always have my quick response. FYI, all my apts have free WIFI. Not all apts are equipped with washing machines, dryers or tubs. You could use the washing machine and the dryer in my office. It is free. For the purpose of full disclosure, the apartments you book may not be the same one you will live in. For example I have about 10 one-bedroom apartments, so if you book one of them, you may get an apartment not exactly like that one, but a similar one, Of course they are of the price, and the appliance,size and location are same.
My phone number and email could be found on Airbnb once you successfully complete the reservation. You can also friend me on we chat by searching my cell phone number beginning with 181. No sarcasm but we do can visit this Airbnb website here in China, at least for now. One last thing, if you ever get lost and could not contact me, show your address Wanda Plaza, Yanji Road (延吉路万达, you can print these Chinese words out）to passers-by, drivers or police.
