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.
