We began our tour driving to Zhongshan Square which was constructed by Russians in 1899; it is also the oldest square in Dalian. From this square we started walking through the city we passed through Friendship Square, Victory Square and the Qingniwapiao Shopping area luckily they didn’t give us anytime to shop because I always find something to buy. From the shopping area, we continued walking to People Square whose name was changed from Stalin Square. It was built to commemorate the liberation of Northeast China in 1945 by the Soviet Union’s Red Army.
From here our walking tour continued to our last stop which was Labor Park to fly our kite. The tradition of kite flying dates back more than 2,000 years in China. This park was cool it had big statues of the Chinese zodiac animals.
