One step away of my home, Xinghai square, one of the biggest squares in the world. 1 tour around is 2.4km. Packed with 1 day Chinese tourists. But a must see when you are in Dalian.

At more than 270 acres, Xinghai Square is the largest city square in the world. Surrounded by amusement parks, offices, shopping malls and luxury hotels, there are plenty of things to do here, including watching the fountain show at night.

Undoubtedly it is the largest square of the world. Also known as the sea of stars. Overlooking the yellow sea on one side and the beautiful skyscrappers of Dalian on the other, it is an iconic square in itself. There are many statues which are...More
