Dalian is a major city and seaport in the south of Liaoning Province, People’s Republic of China. It is the southernmost city of Northeast China and China’s northernmost warm water port, at the tip of the Liaodong Peninsula.

The Shandong Peninsula lies southwest across the Bohai Sea; Korea lies across the Yellow Sea to the east.
Dalian is a popular destination among domestic tourists and foreign visitors, especially from Japan, South Korea and Russia.
