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 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.

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.

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.
