After a short relax, let's visit Xinghai Square. Xinghai Square, 2.5 times as big as famous Beijing Tianmen Square, is the largest square in Asia. Upon arrival, let's pay a visit to the interesting Dalian Shell Museum near the southeast side of the square first, which is said to have the largest number of shell exhibits in the world. The shells displayed in the museum are not only from China but also from Malaysia, New Zealand, Argentina, Spain, Morocco and other over 30 countries. You will be impressed a lot by those adorable shells of different kinds, colors and shapes. Later, enjoy stunning sunset here. Romantic rays of the sunshine shinning on a long bridge across the broad sea with seagulls flying in the air, forming an extremely harmonious scene. If lucky, you will also be welcomed by a wonderful Music Fountain Show performed in the center of the square.
