Zibo is a city in Shandong.

Get in[edit]

By plane[edit]

Zibo is a 90 minute drive from Jinan Yaoqiang International Airport. The airport bus is available in front of the Zibo Rose Hotel near the railway station. There are eight buses daily, which make airport runs between 05:20 to 17:00. Jinan Yaoqiang Airport has also recently begun construction of the Luzhong Passenger Terminal in Zibo City which is located on the first floor of the Guomao Mansion in northern Liuquan Lu (Zhangdian District). This terminal is expected to be operational in the near future.

By bus[edit]

Zibo's long-distance bus station is located at 22 Xingyuan Xi Lu, Zhangdian District. Buses to Tai'an, (where Mt. Tai is located) depart every 30 minutes.

By train[edit]

Trains provide the most convenient and inexpensive mode of transportation to Mt. Tai. About 15 trains run to and from the mountain, making stops in Zibo. The journey to Mt. Tai from Zibo takes about two hours, with tickets at ¥14-87.

Get around[edit]


  • 1 Zibo Taoci Museum (淄博市陶瓷博物馆), 153号 Shangchang W St, Zhangdian Qu, Zibo Shi, Shandong Sheng, China, 255000, +86 533 218 3902. A large ceramics museum in central Zibo containing a number of galleries with many interesting examples of Chinese ceramics, both ancient and modern. The central hall has some particularly interesting ceramic figures of Chinese heroes, real and fictional.
  • 2 Qi Dynasty Memorial Museum, Qidu Town, Linzi District, Zibo 255422, China. Some distance to the east of central Zibo, this museum contains galleries about the ancient Qi State that once controlled half of modern Shandong Province. A second paid-for gallery contains relics from an ancient royal tomb; very much like the Terracotta Warriors in miniature. There is also some information about China's ancient football-like sport 'cuju' and a confirmation from FIFA that Zibo was the origin of professional soccer (really!). The China Ancient Chariots Museum is a short drive from here.
  • 3 Linzi Ancient Chinese Vehicle Museum (中国古车博物馆), Qiling Town, Linzi District, Zibo 255400, China. Some distance to the east of central Zibo, this museum, which is constructed on both sides and underneath of a motorway, has galleries containing information about and full-scale replicas of chariots from various periods in Chinese history. The chariots are impressive. An archeological site displaying slain horses from an ancient Qi State royal tomb sits directly under the motorway and is the reason for the rather isolated location of this interesting museum. The Qi Dynasty Memorial Museum is a short drive from here.
  • 4 Yuanshan National Forest Park (Southwest of the Boshan District). This is the only national forest in Zibo. The park consists of five scenic zones: The great wall of the Qi Kingdom, the grass skiing field, the Dinosaur Valley, and the folk custom garden.
  • 5 Pusong Ling Ancient Home (蒲松龄故居), Liaozhai Rd, Zichuan Qu, Zibo Shi, Shandong Sheng, China. Home of ancient author of famous horror stories.





48 Bar (四十八号酒巴) This bar is located on LiuQuan Lu (六泉路) next to Brazilian Barbeque (巴西烤肉) . And is where Zibo's expats as well as locals head on Friday or Saturday Evenings to kick back. The beers are relatively cheap for a foreigner bar $10 yuan Qingdao big bottles. Liquor is a little more expensive at about $30 to $50 yuan for a single shot of your favourite Vodka, Tequila or Jack Daniel's. Zibo's small expat population make most patrons usually very friendly and if you bring your iPod or MP3 you can jam out to some of your favourite songs. There is also table football and draughts for those who love bar games.

齐王府-QiWangFu Night Club Is the best nightclub Zibo has to offer. Taxi drivers are all familiar so getting there should not be a problem. Entrance is usually free for ladies and 10-20 yuan for males. Referred to as 'bouncy club' by foreigners in this city. It can be lots of fun if you like dancing. Bigger dance floor than the average Chinese nightclub lots of Chinese techno and drinks aren't too cheap but locals usually head there after they have already done most of their drinking. There are usually games or competitions in between the dancing hosted by the local emcees.
