    This experience was captivating. I haven't been to my hometown since I was a little kid. This remarkable moment sparked me. Nostalgia filled my body. This is not only a square, it has picturesque scenery everywhere.

    First, right in the centre of the square, you'll find an enormous area, dedicated to a fountain. Every day at 7 pm, the fountain will activate, pumping water into the air. Some of the water jets can spring up to approximately 20 meters high (this is not a hyperbole). Many people come to see this and if you are on a plane, at 5000-10000 feet in the sky, the luminous LED lights of the fountain are beautiful.

    Many people say it is just a square, but it is more than that. There is a massive monument that is shaped like a banana. This place is ideal for taking selfies or the idyllic view of the coast.

    This place is unforgettable.

    Good scenic views by the water. Worth a visit, especially if you have young children. Laohutan Scenic Park is also known by locals as Tiger Beach (Laohutan) Ocean Park. It is a recreational park with activities for the whole family. This ocean scenic park is comprised of Tiger Park, Tiger Square, an Aquarium, and Singing Birds Woods.

    We visited Dalian zoo in October and as in most tourist places, it was very busy, but the area is big enough to accomodate many people. The animals are well looked after in good cages but the walking distance between some of the animals is quite far so wear good walking shoes. There are beautiful wooden decks above most of the animal attractions and these provide good viewing spots and good platfoms for taking photos of the animals. The variety of animals is huge. There is a coach ride through the south end of the park but standing in the que is not worth the time rather walk the route along the road or the wooden decks. The cable ride goes over the mountain and back and is worth the trip as the view is lovely.

    A wonderful drive down this road. For those like me who live in Tianjin full of concrete, this is a breathe of fresh air. Literally too, Ha ha.

    Chilly in November, but still nice to walk on the beautiful, clean, long beach. Lots of entertainment facilities, cafes, restaurants and other eateries nearby.

    Nice place but overrated. It is a central square in Dalian with a lot going on around the place. Good to see once.

    We came to the the large city-center park for relaxing, unhurried photo taking against the parks varied natural backdrops. It is a clean well-maintained park.

    I wish there were translations of what the saying were on all the various monuments - but it was a very cool place to see.

    This is the nice square in the centre of the city. The are of the sqaure is approximately about 215 metres. The square has the park & is surrounded by the very nice picturesque buildings which are mainly converted in to banks currently. A nice place to go for morning walk. Later as the day begins this becomes one of the crowded place.

    Best part of my trip. Note, you do not actually go to the island. You look at it. Swim in the sea and enjoy the beach. 20-25 yuan taxi ride from Dalian city centre.

    It is interesting to see the variety of aquatic life including plants and animals they have on display.
