Why teachers love Dalian:
Dalian is a seaside city located in the North-East of China. Here they say that on the map, China is shaped a bit like a chicken; if that’s the case, Dalian is around the beak area. The population here is about 6 and a half million though you wouldn’t guess it. It’s generally got great air quality and it is a lively, cosmopolitan city.
It’s a modern city, but you will also find quite a few historical sites dotted around the place. In its history, it has been occupied by the British, the Japanese, and also the Russians. You can find the architecture and cultural remnants of all three.
There are lots of things to see and do when living in Dalian:
- Western bars, pubs, western & Chinese restaurants
- hiking spots
- seaside swimming and/or BBQ
- Taichi in the park
- one of the largest city square in the entire world (Xinghai Square)
- a yearly beer festival in the square with beers from all over the world
Plus there’s the annual Dalian marathon for those fit enough to participate. Enjoy it all with great blue skies using a modern subway system or cheap and convenient buses. While you enjoy the city, make sure to meet friendly people who are used to seeing foreigners around (though, travel outside the city and you’ll likely be stared at!).
Dalian is a city that once teachers visit, they won’t want to leave again. See for yourself! It has a large community of expats from all countries that come to visit, end up loving it, and live there for several years.
