  STS090-707-074 Dalian (Dairen), China April 1998
The large city of Dalian (Dairen), visible at the left center of the image, is the leading port city of northeast China and China’s second leading port behind Shanghai. Darian is located at the southern end of the Liaodong Peninsula. In this southeast-looking view, the many port facilities in Dalian Bay are discernible. With one of the finest harbors in East Asia, Dalian is a leading manufacturing, cultural, and financial center. The city is also a major tourist area with a mild climate and miles (km) of fine beaches. A major railroad transportation line connects with railroads in Manchuria to the north and eastern China to the west and south. Dalian has low mountains and hills on three sides of the city.
