Your half-day tour begins with a visit to People’s Square, located in the center of Dalian and dating back to 1899. At one point in history it was named Stalin Square. Construction of Dalian’s ice-free port began and was completed in 1930 by the Japanese, but under the terms of the 1945 Yalta Agreement, control of the city passed from Japan to the Soviet Union, which assisted in the construction of vast munitions plants and the completion of Dalian’s network of underground defense shelters. The occupation ended in 1954; however, a strong Soviet presence still lingers. Visit one of the thousands of nursery schools in Dalian and spend some time with these adorable children before boarding your coach for a scenic drive to Beida Bridge. This bridge was completed in 1987 to commemorate Dalian’s friendly relationship as a sister city with Japan’s city of Kitakyushu. The unique architectural style of Beida Bridge has made this bridge an attraction in Dalian. The last stop on your tour is at Labour Park, the largest public park in Dalian. The park offers a panoramic view of this picturesque northern China city. See the many new construction sites marking the economic reform of Dalian, as well as that of China. You will then re-board your coach for the return to the ship.
If the nursery school visit is not available, a visit to the Dalian Concert Hall to observe the Children activities such as musical instrument class, chorus class etc., will be organized.
