Recommended Add-on Options

+ 1 day more to Shenyang

Shenyang is only a 1.5~4.5 hours’ ride from Dalian by high speed train. This city is far more than the capital and transportation hub of Liaoning Province. It was the place where China’s final imperial dynasty - Qing sprung up. Therefore, it is a wonderful cultural destination for those who are curious of Chinese history and culture. If you are also history fans, you can add one more day from Dalian to Shenyang to visit its highlights, including two UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites - Mukden Palace and Zhaoling Tomb, Marshal Zhang Mansion and Beiling Park. Mukden Palace is especially a must-visit, which is also reputed as a miniature Forbidden City.
