Arrived in Jinan (capital city of Shandong province) and took a 1hr 30mins drive to Taishan. Taishan mountain is historically important in China history as it is a mountain the early emperors visited even the first emperor who united China Qin Shi Huang Ti.

Anyway I am here for for holiday so went to visit a factory right away arriving at factory about 1pm so went straight for lunch in the factory canteen. Now this don't look like any canteen at all rather its like a restaurant

The meal, local Shandong cuisine, really impressed
