DalianPerched at the tip of the Liaodong Peninsula, Dalian is surrounded by water on three sides and mountains on the fourth. Dalian is quite unique with its amazing geographical features, and it is because of Dalian's geography, with its two ice-free ports and protective mountains that it was so sought after by the Russians, Japanese, and Chinese alike in the past. More importantly today, the oceans, tree-covered mountains, and natural beauty make Dalian both a travel destination and favorite place of residence for many of these same people.

Dalian is a fairly young city by Chinese standards, but has managed to factor fairly significantly into the history of Northeast China during the last two centuries. Since the late 1890's, Dalian and its surrounding areas have switched hands from China, to Japan, to Russia, back to the Japanese, back to the Chinese and Russians together, and finally entirely back to China in 1955. Wandering the streets of various neighborhoods in Dalian, Russian and Japanese inluence is apparent in much of the architecture, and adds some international flavor to the cityscape.

DalianHaving grown from a mere fishing village in the early 1900's, the Dalian skyline is nothing less than impressive. Dalian is now a cultural, economic, and trading hub of Northeast China. Every year, more and more international companies are coming to set up shop in Dalian. Dalian is also a favorite tourist destination for both Chinese and foreign travelers alike. With ocean beaches, museums, aquariums, an International Fashion Festival, an International Beer Festival, an internationally acclaimed golf course (Golden Pebble Beach), mountain hikes, the top-ranked soccer team in China, an exciting nightlife, and a growing expatriate population, there is a lot to do within the city. Dalian is also just a short flight away from many other intriguing places: one hour from Beijing, one hour from Seoul, Korea, a couple hours from Shanghai, and a couple hours from Tokyo. Dalian is also a great springboard for journeys into northern China, to places like Harbin, Shenyang, Inner Mongolia, or even all the way up to Russia!

While Dalian does not have the multi millennia history that many other cities boast, it has its own charm. Clean air, beaches, western amenities, and a huge helping of traditional Chinese culture make Dalian an interesting and very enjoyable place to live. If you don't believe it, come and try for yourself!
