Nice beach area
Sep 2019
Nice place to stroll. It takes approximately 15 minutes to walk from one end to the other. There are a few canons on the site. Not worth to walk into the souvenir shops. The history of the place is all written in Chinese along the area.

I tried to go there, but the taxi drivers at Lushun Subway Station were running a scam
Aug 2018 • Solo
I wanted to go to Port Arthur; so, I took the subway from Xinghai Square to Lushun. After I got off the train, I went outside to where the taxis were, avoiding the woman inside who was trying to drum up business for taxis (these are often scammers who over charge). When I got outside, I tried to get a taxi, but NONE of the several taxi drivers wanted to take me. I reluctantly went back inside to talk to the woman who was arranging transportation and, as I suspected, she was running a scam and it's clear the other taxi drivers were in on it. She wanted to charge me 200 RMB to go to Port Arthur. I could have taken a taxi from my hotel in Dalian for less than that. I got angry and walked away disgusted. I gave up on trying to get to Port Arthur and took the subway back to Dalian.

Very important spot on the historical point of view, it was the starting point of the Russo-Japanese war in 1904.

Port Arthur, Lvshun
Sep 2016
Small, quaint town with a scenic view of the Harbour. A good place to go fishing if you like it. If you are in and around Dalian, this is a must visit place.

It's called "LV SHUN GANG"!! Dam it
Feb 2015 • Solo
Visited in Sep 2011, this is called Lv Shun Gang NOT Port Arthur!! You can see the mountains across from the port and the sea. It's something you can view.

Historical area sout of Dalian proper
Sep 2015 • Business
Good walk to reach the tower. Can also access the top area or go down to the bottom on chair lift. Have to be able to get off lift while it's still moving. Over 70 admitted free with passport showing birth date. Lots of history.

Non descript city and port but its the seafood that counts
May 2014 • Friends
If you go to the city and port you will surely be wondering what people like about it as that part is a pretty non descript chinese city. Coming from Dalian there are two access ways - in land ( sort of) which takes you past the cherry orchards with heaps of roadside farmers selling cherries - buy the biggest and darkest ones - i got slugged 45 per jin but were probably the best cherries in Dalian. The ones for 15 to 30 are not big or fully ripe.

The other way is along the coast which takes about an hour. Along the way you get some great scenery and at Lu Shun there is a great fishermans fish market. The fish and other aquatic lifeforms are great and cheap. Best part. You can buy it, stroll across the road to any number of seafood restaurants and they will cook it for you - for a price but nothing outrageous. This appears to be standard practice as heaps of other diners came in loaded with bags of seafood for the place i was in to cook and eat. You can also buy dried seafood and some exotic sort of sea creature paste that was actually delicious.

Taxi from youhao square dalian return including fish market help and waiting was 220rmb. Guessing that puts the price the same as a dalian restaurant but as an outing well worth it. It is pretty well unlikely a taxi will take you only one way as it is far from dalian with no return fare. If you do go oneway be prepared to pay over and above the taxi fare by up to 50%. Cheaper to get him/her to hang around.
