Chinese City Fact: Dalian

Dalian is a city in North East China with an urban population of around 3.5 million people. Highly regarded in China as one of it’s most beautiful cities, it is often compared to Seattle and San Francisco. It is actually a relatively young city in China terms at only 100 years old and played an important role as a trading port in it’s early days.

It is also sometimes known as the “Oriental Brazil” because of it’s very successful football team and it’s yearly fashion festival in September. Thanks to former mayor Bo Xilai, Dalian is a city of green parks, fountains and seaside scenic spots. A lot of new development is going on in the city including a signature project, “Dalian Tiandi” which will bring together a series of sustainable and cutting edge mixed use developments in a larger masterplan.
