Shandong province is working to build four cultural corridors along the Yellow River, the Grand Canal, the Great Wall of Qi, and the Huanghai and Bohai seas, as well as one cultural experience route along the Qingdao-Jinan high-speed railway to boost the region's economic and social development through cultural tourism.
In this flowery spring, there is no better time than now to enjoy an outing along the province's four cultural corridors, which has much to offer.
