Weihai is a city in the Shangdong province, which is in northeast China, on the Bohai Sea. It is a major commercial seaport. Because of its proximity to South Korea, it is also home to many South Korean businesses. It was occupied by the Japanese for a few years in the late 19th century, and then under British rule from 1898 until 1930. unlike other Chinese seaports, it was not occupied during World War II.
Getting to Weihai can be tricky, because air options are limited and a bus from any other city takes a very long time. In the winter, it can be even harder to get from another domestic city into Weihai. One suggestion is to fly through Incheon, South Korea, which can be faster than flying domestically.
Most hostel accommodation in Weihai is found in the main city. However, there are several different neighbourhoods in Weihai, so if you need to be near the train station, you can find a hostel out there. The train station is remote though, so you might prefer to be in the city even if you have to take a train. Most hostels are near the beach and main shopping area. Ask for a “su-she,” - or look for the characters 宿舍 - which is the pronunciation for “hostel” in simplified Chinese.
Weihai is a large port and as such is a major fishing industry. One of the most well-known Weihai local delicacies is sea cucumbers; scallops are also easy to get here (and are cheap compared to the US/UK). If you can, get out on to the water with a fisherman to experience the life. If you aren’t a water person and you want to still experience nature, you can hike at Shengjingshan Mountain. You can also experience the Dao culture on the mountain if you’re curious about the cultural history in Weihai.
