Shandong province sits on the lower reaches of the Yellow River and the coast of eastern China, with Jinan as its capital.
Magnificent mountains and vast sea nurture her 7,000-year history. It is the place where Confucius was born, where Mount Tai rose skyward, where the Yellow River empties into the sea and where the Olympic Sailing Games took place.
Home to the ancient states of Qi and Lu, it was within the political and economic center of China from the pre-Qin period (c.2100-221 BC) to the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127).
It is a land of ceremony and propriety, with a perfect combination of ancient and modern civilization.
