For the duration of the summer vacation in Qingdao, there was a 3D Art Exhibition near Darling Harbour. Justin and I had been wanting to check it out for weeks, but only got around to it at the very end of August. As expected anywhere in China, there were many crowds of people, which made picture-taking a little difficult, but we managed to get a few decent shots. The most frustrating part was that the Chinese people were more interested in taking photos of us than of themselves, so we didn’t have much space to relax and enjoy it, and began to get quite annoyed. This is one of those things about living in China that has it’s ups and downs – sometimes we don’t mind the attention, other times we just can’t handle it.
The 3D Art Exhibition was 60 yuan per person, but right outside the building – merely 50 meters away from the ticket sales window – sat two men selling tickets for only 40 yuan. Yup, that’s one of the joys of living in China. If you look around, you are almost always bound to get a better deal. I should add that these guys were not hiding away or anything, nope, they were sitting within sight of the building. We saw many others buy 60 yuan tickets at the ticket window, so I guess not everyone knows about this. We were just relieved that the tickets worked.. haha! Is this legal?
We have no idea. We don’t ask questions!
Here’s a look at some of the 3D Art Displays we played around in…
This was the first 3D Art Show that either of us had ever been to, and although it was crowded, we had a good time. Admittedly, I didn’t feel much like being in (other people’s) photos on this day, but my wonderful husband was a great sport!
