The location of Shandong Province

Shandong (山东; Shāndōng) is a province in China.

The name means east of the mountains. Shandong is a coastal province situated by the Bohai Sea to the north and the Yellow Sea to the south. The Yellow River runs through the province.

Main attractions are Qufu (the birthplace of Confucius), Mount Tai (the most climbed mountian in China), Qingdao (nice port city with beaches) and Yantai (holiday city with lots of European buildings). The capital, Jinan, is of limited interest to travellers, except as a transport hub.

Regions

Shandong is subdivided into 17 prefectures, 140 counties and 1,941 townships. Geographically, it can be subdivided in

  • Lowland Shandong — the area along the rivers in the northwest, west and southwest of the province.
  • Highland Shandong — the hilly area in the central part of the province.
  • Coastal Shandong — the coastal area including Shandong Peninsula in the eastern part of the province.
