Dalian, a well-known city with a longstanding history and civilization, lies on the east coast of Eurasia and the southern tip of Liaodong peninsular in Northeast China, with the Yellow Sea on the east, Bohai Sea on the west, facing the Shandong peninsular across the sea on the south and backed up by the vast Northeast Plain on the north. Dalian is the marine gateway of Northeast China. Now as the provincial level decision-making authority, also named as ”Northern Hong Kong”, it comprises 5 districts, 3 county-level cities with a total population of 5,601,000. Dalian has a world-class reputation for its seafood, shopping, and sightseeing. Numerous tourist spots including the Xinghai Shell Museum, the second phase of the Dalian Water Paradise and the Sun Asia Ocean World have been opened for tourists. All these tourist spots can be visited comfortably in December. Dalian is well connected to major cities via air and rail.
