Located in the southern part of China's Shandong Province, the municipality is comprised of six districts (ShiNan, ShiBei, LiCang, LaoShan, ChengYang, HuangDao) and four county-level cities (Jimo, JiaoZhou, PingDu, LaiXi). China's Sailing City (east longitude of 119°30’ - 121°00’ and north latitude 35°35’ - 37°09’) is surrounded by YanTai to the northeast, WeiFang to the west, and Rizhao to the southwest. There are altogether three mountains in the municipality: Mount Lao to the southeast, Mount Daze in the north, and JiaoNan to the south.
Qingdao has a total coastline (including its islands) of 862.64 km, of which 730.64 km are continental coastline with features similar to that of California’s north coast. The coastal region is sometimes referred to as Qindao ( Stringed Instrument Isle). The coastal beach area totals 375.35 square km including 69 islands totaling an area of 231.1 square kilometers.

The Central Business District (CBD) near the Qingdao Olympic Sailing Centre & International Marina along with Qingdao's Economic and Technological Development Zone (QETDZ), located in Huangdao, combine to form Shandong's premier coastal international business center or Blue Economic Zone. Qingdao is economically dynamic with major industries that include trade, agriculture/aquaculture, light industry, electronics & telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, ship building, oceanography research, and tourism. With fast growing financial and insurance industries, as well as international corporate law, Qingdao has become one of top 10 most livable cities in China.
