Qinhuangdao is situated in the northeastern part of Hebei Province. It borders the Yanshan Mountains in the north and Bohai Bay in the south. As one of north China's ice-free natural harbors, it abounds in fish, prawns, and other aquatic products. The famous health resort, Beidaihe Beach, lies southwest of the city.

Qinhuangdao has a long history. The first emperor of Qin Dynasty once stationed here on his eastern inspection tour in 215 B.C, and sent Lu Sheng of Yan State to seek importals off the sea, hence the place was named after him as Qinhuangdao (island of Emperor Qin).

The city has rich tourism resources including unique and diverse landscapes, waterfalls, springs, and numerous wildlife and plant resources. There are many cultural relics and historic sites dotted in the city such as the Great Wall, Shanhaiguan Pass.

Qinhuangdao also features a leisurely summer resort, Beidaihe beaches surrounded by mountains, where you can enjoy coastal scenes and water activities.
