Bitterly Cold

Scenic area of Dalian, although visited on a bitterly cold Sunday morning Lots of bronze sculptures adds some character to the square Worth a look, but go in Spring or Summer!

Except for its huge size, this square isn't worth a visit. There's nothing interesting to see. Currently the central area, where the music fountains are, is closed for renovation.

Nice place for a walk after your business meetings. Be prepared for the cold if youre there in winter. Nice cafes abound and its a nice spot for the obligatory tourist photo.

Huge square itself have nothing in the middle and a rounded by hotel, conventions center, shops, restaurants, amusement park and high class restaurants residences. Most tourists go to seaside to annoy the view and taking photos. Very nice walking around if the weather is mild and not windy.

Start there and walk along the waterside. There is a coffee place and a restaurant near the edge of the square, alongside with the shell museum.bronze statues all around the place, it can get windy but still fun.

I love this Place. The view is perfect. The whole place is so clean. The air feels also very clean and fresh. Give us the opportunity to relax after a hard week full of working. We love it to take a long walk on the beach and just enjoy being here.

This is a very large square. Nice by the water, but like anywhere in China, it's crowded with people! It's probably one of the places you should visit if you come to Dalian.

Xinghai square is a great place to visit. Though it gets very crowded in summer. There is a fairground next to the park which has a lot of fun rides.

The Xinghai Square was a huge plaza that once was the pride of Dalian. It's aureole dwindled after its signature obelisk was torn down recently. A new fountain was being built at the relic now. At the waterfront, there was a huge marble-made structure resembling an open book, tourists could climb up each side of the slope and take nice... More

Well first things first, it is not exactly your typical town square (and it's more oval than square), it is very big and many intersting bits on the sides especially on the south (sea) side, here you can find all sorts of amuzements, boat trips, cafes, beach and walks which goe on for quite some distance along the coast.
