Shandong Province has some nice locations to offer tourists. Jinan is a cute, green city with many natural springs. Taishan is a sacred Taoist mountain. and well worth a visit. However, unless you are really fit, do not try to climb thousands of steps. Take a bus halfway up the mountain and then take a cable car to the top. Lastly, Qufu, the hometown of Confucius, is an ancient city with a lot to see. My travel agent Wendy and tour guide Bruce were great; you really cannot be disappointed.
