Dalian is located in the southern tip of Liaodong Peninsula, surrounded by the Bohai Sea and Yellow Sea. With its beaches, lush parks and hills, and balmy summers, Dalian is a popular resort destination with locals from surrounding provinces looking for a relaxing getaway. Billed as one of the most liveable cities in China and the ‘Hong Kong of the North’, the second largest city in Liaoning Province has much to offer the visitor: swimming beaches, magnificent coastal views, and a cosmopolitan vibe that’s evident in the architecture, wide, tree-lined streets, and proliferation of international cuisines from sushi to borscht.
Compared to other Chinese cities, Dalian is a relatively young metropolis. It was occupied by Russia and Japan for many decades, and visitors are often pleasantly surprised to discover it is quite different from their expectations. With European-style buildings, elegant squares with sculptures and fountains, and green lawns, it could be a Western city.
The best times to visit are in summer and autumn, when the weather is perfect for long walks in scenic areas and beaches, and enjoying the theme parks. And should you wish to venture beyond, an excellent transportation network connects it to many other cities in China.
