"Dalian" Dalian by Katie&Jordi

Dalian Travel Guide: 282 reviews and 459 photos

Our first hope, after looking at Dalian on the map, was to find the sea, and perhaps a beach. And yes, there are some nearby beaches, but they are not very spectacular.

We realized a couple of months later that the beaches to go to are not on the tip of the peninsula or towards the open sea, but rather on the inner part of the Liaoning peninsula (take a look at our Xingcheng Page).

Anyway, we did not find the kind of beach we were looking for in Dalian , but we settled for a scenic coastal highway to walk along instead. The views were fantastic and we enjoyed the walk a lot.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Clean city, nice coast.
  • Cons:Location, it is in one of the extreme corners of China, far away from everywhere else.
  • In a nutshell:One of the most original cities of all Chinese cities we've visited.
