Xinghai Square, Dalian

4.0
Considered the world's largest city square, Xinghai Square covers a star-shaped area of 1.1 million m sq (684 mi sq), which attracts thousands of tourists on a daily basis. Reconstructed by the government in 1998, the square contains the country's largest tables made of white marble and decorated with illustrations of dragons, which commemorate Hong Kong's return to the motherland. As you stroll through the vast area, inspect many bronze sculptures, human footprints which represent the transition from childhood to adulthood. Besides enjoying the square's modern architecture and the sea air, also visit the surrounding sites such as the exhibition center, shell museum, and beach park.

  • Nothing much big on the square. Just some views. And some shops. Check on the beach beyond the square. It's worth  more »
  • The largest square in Asia. Dalian is the place most visited by people. You can see the sea and the beautiful night view. The sea breeze cool often tried to walk often. These days, the air is not good, you need to be careful.

  • The governor's big hand pen has changed a lot over the years. The thin governor went out of the list and became a fountain, and there was a great bridge across the sea. Does not change is can climb Big Book, handprint, pigeons son, step on the train.

  • The landmark, and once the pride of Dalian before the most renowned obelisk there was torn down for its blasphemous nature against the Party.
