Tall new buildings reach toward the sky, while modern double-decker buses, trams and quaint old-fashioned tourist buses run through clean, attractive streets. Birds sing in green parks, bringing Mother Nature to the heart of the city.
Founded on the site of a small fishing village exactly 100 years ago. Dalian has developed into one of the most famous and dynamic cities in Asia. By any standards, it is a great place to live and work. This is because the government and people of Dalian, applying the principle of "Not seeking the biggest, but seeking the best", wanted not just a busy city, but also a beautiful city, with plenty of parks and open spaces. The biggest transformation has taken place in the past few years. Indeed, Dalian's urban construction has entered its prime time.
For the relaxation and entertainment of locals and visitors alike, the municipal government has built and expanded many parks and public squares, including the People's Square, Zhongshan Music Circle, Friendship Circle, Xinghai Square, the Charm of the Sea Square, the Huayue Square, and the Olympic Square.
The stylish business compound on People's Road, the financial center at Zhongshan Circle, the shopping district by Qingniwa Bridge and the convention and exhibition center on the Xinghai Square have been acclaimed by people from both home and abroad.
