Introduction to Dalian
Dalian — the "Northern Pearl" and summer resort of China, compared to ancient capital cities such as Beijing, Xian, Nanjing or Xi’an, is a young city with only a 100-year history. Dalian is the most relaxed and livable city in Northeast China. In many parts of China, economic prosperity comes at the price of clean air and charm. Not so in Dalian, whose natural blessings are its biggest asset. Tree-lined, hilly streets, dotted colonial architectures, an impressive coastline with beaches, as well as its prosperous town, have made it being dubbed as the "Hong Kong of the North China". It is one of the three Best Tourism Cities (2006), along with Hangzhou and Chengdu, recognized by the National Tourism Administration.
