If you get a chance, hopefully you will see the water show. Think Bellagio Hotel in Vegas. There is a neat fountain show. Also, in the square there is a HUGE sculpture. Kids ride plastic sleds down it. It's adorable to watch. Very common place...More

Our four girls really enjoyed the Xinghai Square, despite it being bitterly cold. They particularly enjoyed the small amusement park. They would have loved to ride all of the rides, however it was just far too cold to being swinging around in the cold Dalian...More

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.

Nice place to see - a square itself and adjacent beach / amusement park area. Try to avoid during hot days in summer - it is almost nowhere to hide from heat and sun. During Beermania (end of July-early Aug) the square itself is closed...More
