The Chinese People’s Liberation Army Navy will hold open day events in many coastal cities, including Qingdao, around April 23 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of its founding.

Between April 20 and 24, the public in Qingdao will be able to visit the missile destroyers Guiyang, Shijiazhuang and Kaifeng, the missile frigate Handan, the supply ship Kekexilihu and the submarine rescue ship Hongzehu at Pier 3 and the International Center Pier of Qingdao Sailing. Visitors will also have the opportunity to interact with members of the Navy.

Most of the ships were involved in important missions such as the escort mission in the Gulf of Aden, visits to overseas ports and joint exercises. In addition to Qingdao, the Navy said it will organize simultaneous open day activities at its barracks in other cities, including Dalian, Yantai, Ningbo, Wuhan, Xiamen, Guangzhou, Haikou and Sanya.

Online booking channels have been opened for the public to book visits to Navy ships during events scheduled for the open day.
