Dalian is the provincial capital of Liaoyang. Its ice-free port of is strategically located for access between the north of China, Russian Ferderation, and the nations of northern Asia, hence it's named "Great Link". And for this reason, it had undergone serveral changes of reign, this made Dalian does not look like other China cities. Old Tsarist buildings rub shoulders with those in classical Japanese style, the whole leavened with Chinese tradition and a scattering of modern hotels and office buildings. Local seafood features heavily on restaurant menus. It is a well known summer holiday resort with excellent beaches lying below the green hills which flank the city. Dalian is also one or the four "priority open cities" out of China's Open Coastal Cities.
