The new Pavillion Shopping mall has transformed Dalian. It has many good restaurants and the shopping is excellent.
In addition Dalian is of great historical interest and really worth visiting
Dalian is a city of "the mixture of the old and the modern". There are old buildings of old Russian taste, and historical monuments of Russo-Japanese War.
Besides, the central ares is well developed and modernized. People enjoy city life i.e. shopping, dining, night life, etc.
we enjoyed the under ground malls in this city.. this really surprised us.. never seen so many shops.
. the beaches here are very good.. we enjoyed our trip to beaches. our hotel was a short distance from train station. hope to return here again some day,, only wish to fly as it took 16 hours by train one way..
If you read most reviews of the 200+ sites around Dalian...i also dont get the urgency to see any of these.
Why unless business or family would you want to come there? I was not impressed.
Love love love this city!!!! Went there for the third time and loving it even more. It's a beautiful city with Russian and Japanese influences.
Love the food (said to have the best seafood but don't expect it to come cheap for quality seafood) Air quality is relatively good and convenient public transport, many things to do. Visit Zhongshan square (one of my favorite spot for it's surrounding buildings), Xinghai Square (the largest square in Asia), Binhai Road to name a few. I'd recommend to take a day or two to just explore and enjoy the city
they have many shopping mall around .they sell many different kinds of producd, the price is very cheap and reasonable
the city itself is much larger then you would expect, the people are friendly, but not as friendly as the middle of china and the west of china where they do not see as many foreigners, they also are not very helpful to strangers, but it is not so bad you think the word stranger and enemy are the same, i was not there long enough to see the beaches or sites, but from what I could, it is a beautiful city!
Lovely costal city with relatively small population. Less traffic making the environment less polluted.
Lots of local seafood produce available from many shopping centres.
A lovely sea-side city with fairly good weather with less pollution then most major cities in China. Easy to find authentic Korean and Japanese restaurants.
Most places of interests are near the city with easy access by taxi or bus.
Although I have seen too less about the city, in the morning it is crouwded with traffic but not as much as Guangzhou, Beijing or Shanghai.
People very friendly.
The north people are relatively better in China. The environment and air is rather good. Sunny and sea side is bright.
I staid in Dalian city for 1 week, my apartment faced Xinghai square. This side of the city is very nice and quiet, good for walking, relax e have a good view of the sea and the green hills all around Xinghai.
Other parts of the city are more crowded and you have to use taxi to move (there are lot of cheap taxis), the problem is the language. Taxi drivers don't know english and it could be a problem if you don't have a Chinese written destination.
it was nice place to visit. They call their city is by the most romantic city in China. They place its like North west area in USA
Dalian is a very beautiful city, well planned and organised. It's very livable compared to other cities in China.
I'll be back for a holiday.
Great place to stay for business and for relaxing. Great seafood, always fresh. Seafood business is great.
Dalian is beautiful city and clean, it different with other city in china, many building here were European(Russia)style.

Amazed by how well developed the city is, and what the government will do in the near future, with new developments of new economic zone, new airport on the sea, etc.
It is clean, well organized, has direct access to the sea. Food is good and not that expensive. People are rather civilized too.
