For the second time, Asia for Animals is coming to Dalian, China.
Dalian — the "Northern Pearl" and the summer resort of China, compared to ancient capital cities such as Beijing, Nanjing or Xi'an, is a young city with only 100 years history. Dalian is the most relaxed and livable city in Northeast part of China. In many parts of China, economic prosperity takes place at the price of clean air and charm. Not so in Dalian, whose natural blessings are its biggest asset. Tree-lined, hilly streets, dotted colonial architectures, an impressive coastline with beaches, as well as its prosperous town, have made it being dubbed as the "Hong Kong of the North China". It is one of the three Best Tourism Cities (2006), along with Hangzhou and Chengdu, recognized by the National Tourism Administration.
