A Brief Introduction of Dalian

The city of Dalian is located on the southernmost tip of the Liaodong Peninsula, jutting out into the Bohai Sea in the northeast, between China and North Korea. It is 4 hours by train south of Shenyang. It has a population of about 5.65 million (2006).

Dalian, a city of Liaoning Province, is a major port of northeastern China and a trading gateway for all of northern China. Dalian is home to major shipyards, oil refineries, diesel engineering plants, and factories for textile and chemical products.


The Dalian area – comprising Dalian and the nearby port/naval base of Lushun (formerly called Port Arthur) farther south, and hence sometimes called Luda – has an ancient history as a shipping port, but only became prominent in the late 19th century when the Qing dynasty established a naval base there.
A harbor for oil tankers, at the terminus of an oil pipeline from the Daqing oil fields, was completed in 1976. Dalian is now the third largest port in China.
