Dalian Shopping Guide (What to Buy and Where to Buy)

Dalian has developed to incredible heights, becoming a financial centre for North-East Asia. If you're embarking on a shopping spree to Dalian, here's what you need to know.



Dalian is a lesser known fashion capital of the world, and the international fashion festival draws many visitors from all over Asia to Dalian and is the time when Dalian accommodation is hardest to procure. September is the time to visit Dalian if you wish to obtain some of the most fashionable clothing around. If you wish to stay at an hotel such as Somerset Grand Central Dalian, better make an advance booking.



Dalian is a seaport city that borders two major bodies of water, therefore the seafood to be found here is mesmerising. A visit to Dalian would be in vain if one doesn't try out what locals consider the Eight Treasures of the sea, six of which are Sea Cucumber, Abalone, Scallops, Prawns, Mussels and Oysters.



Dalian produces some of the most popular fruits in the world. The city's apple-harvest is renowned and produces over one hundred varieties of the fabled fruit. Additionally, cherries, grapes and peaches are all grown here in abundance and are popular all over Northern China.



Dalian has a unique form of art-work involving material either comprised of shells or having shells as a starring component. Items ranging from hanging-paintings, lamps, and decorative ornaments can be found meticulously crafted out of sea-shell components.


Shengli Square Shopping Centre

If you're looking for a one-stop destination that will cater to your needs regarding everything-fashion, this is one of the best places to visit. Located in the downtown area, this shopping centre features dresses, children's items, sportswear and even suits for the gentlemen.


Qiulin Woman's Shop

This seven-story complex features anything and everything women of all ages and walks of life might need. Each floor houses various goods ranging from fashionable clothes, home appliances, cosmetics and accessories.


Friendship Shopping City

Initially this massive complex served as China's friendship store during the planned economy period and as a result has a very special place in the hearts of the locals. Featuring a combined floor space of ten-thousand square meters, one will find all the major fashion brands in the world, in one place.



A most unique shopping centre in Dalian, MYKAL is a joint venture between China and Japan and features an array of home appliances, electronics and photographic products. There's also a popular street located outside the market that is known to feature incredible street food.



Although this popular super-market chain is found all over the world, the particular one in Dalian is located underground. Situated underneath Olympic Square, Dalian's Wal-Mart is a unique underground shopping experience like no other, where you can obtain the unique range of products offered by Wal-Mart.

Dalian is a major seaport city and is still a rising star. The amount of experiences to be hand in this incredible city is daunting, so if you happen to make your way here, be sure to utilise the full worth of your trip.
