Shandong province sits on the lower reaches of the Yellow River and on the coast of eastern China, with Jinan as its capital.
Magnificent mountains and vast sea have nurtured its history. It is the place where Confucius was born, where the Yellow River empties into the sea, and where the Olympic Sailing Games took place.
Famous tourist destinations in Shandong include the Taishan Mountain, a UNESCO world heritage site, and long, winding coastlines in cities including Qingdao, Weihai and Yantai.
