Dalian

Trip Planner Asia  /  China  /  Liaoning  /  Dalian
The large city of Dalian gets its history from its seaport, its modernity from its industry, and its visitors from the fact it largely keeps these things from view. The city center has become renowned for its clean, wide streets, public parks, and hills. The east and south of the peninsula contain the main attraction of Dalian: its beaches. The clean, sandy strips of coastline attract plenty of Chinese families looking to swim in the sea and soak up all the trappings of the seaside economy, including resorts, bars, and seafood restaurants. Add Dalian and other destinations to your itinerary using our China online journey builder , and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
