'''Zhongshan District''' (中山区; ''Zhōngshānqū''), at the eastern edge of the city, encompasses both the main business and commercial centre of Dalian and many of the most scenic parts of the southern coastline. As a result visitors to the city tend to spend most of their time here, a fact reflected in the wide range of hotels and restaurants found in the district. The downside of this popularity is that hotels, restaurants and shops tend to be more expensive than in other parts of the city. That being said for those who can afford it, or take advantage of the few lower budget options available, Zhongshan District makes for an excellent base for exploring Dalian.

==Get in==
 
Central Zhongshan District is very well served when it comes to transportation connections, with both the central train station and passenger ferry terminal lying within its borders. For those arriving by plane, the airport express shuttle and public buses #701 and #702 all stop at the central train station. The main light-rail train station is located in the district, just north of the train station. Both trams #201 and #202 have several stops in the district.

==Get around==
 
Most of the attractions in central Zhongshan District lie within comfortable walking distance of each other. Alternatively, tram 203 takes in much of the central area, and traveling past pretty parks and colonial houses in a 1930s tram car is one of Dalian's more unique experiences. Further afield the Tiger Beach area can be reached via bus 2, departing next to Zhongshan Hotel in Qingniwaqiao, or bus 30, which departs from Zhongshan Square. To get to Donghai Beach take bus 59 from Sanba Square.
==See==
* <see name="Zhongshan Square" alt="中山广场; Zhōngshān Quǎngchǎng" address="" directions="" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">This square in the heart of the city's financial district is surrounded by some of the best examples of colonial-era architecture in Dalian. Though the square was first laid out by the Russians most of the buildings around the square were built between 1910 and 1920 by the Japanese. The square itself serves as a social hub, with locals gathering during the evening to play hacky-sack or watch football games on the big screen above the Dalian Hotel. Square is currently under major construction.</see>

Off season the park is free and can be a pleasant place to take a stroll, but it is probably not worth paying to get in during the holiday periods.</see> * <see name="Tiger Beach" alt="虎滩乐园; Hǔtān Lèyuán" address="" directions="South of the city centre" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">This tourist area is somewhat misnamed, as there really is not a beach to speak of. There are a number of tourist attractions, the most prominent of which is the slightly pricey Polar Aquarium (9AM 09:00- 416:30PM30, &yen;90). Though popular with Chinese tourists , the area, though pretty, is unlikely to hold the attention of more jaded overseas tourists for long and is perhaps best seen as a starting point for journeys along Binhai Road.</see>
* <see name="Donghai Beach/Haizhiyun Square" alt="海之韵广场; Hǎizhīyùn Guǎngchǎng" address="" directions="" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">Like Tiger Beach, Donghai Beach is not as much a beach as it is a cluster of tourist sights. There is a stretch of what could be called a beach but it is shingle rather than sand. The sights here are somewhat more interesting than at Tiger Beach, with some nice modern art sculptures and mock fossils along Binhai Road a little way up from the beach. This stretch of road also includes a section of sloping road where cars appear to roll up the hill. Most taxi drivers will be happy to demonstrate the phenomenon to tourists, even if not asked. Again like Tiger Beach, Donghai Beach is a convenient place to start journeys along Binhai Road.</see>
==Do==
* <do name="Climb up to the TV Tower" alt="" address="" directions="On top of a hill south of Labour Park" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="The cable car costs &yen;10 while the slide costs &yen;15">A tourist attraction in its own right, with a restaurant at the top and impressive views of Dalian. Better than the tower, however, is the walk up via a little known side path, which offers both peaceful greenery in the centre of the city and spectacular views. To get to the side road either walk down the east side of Labour Park or take bus 2 or 5 from Qingniwa and get off at the Traditional Chinese Medicine hospital stop (中医院; ''Zhōngyīyuàn'') and walk back towards the park. The road up to the tower is actually a tiny side road underneath a flyover just south of an old red bricked school next to Labour Park. Though somewhat difficult to find, the road is relatively simple to follow. The only junction is about one third of the way up, next to an artificial lake and the Dalian Circus Academy (the lake makes for a nice place to take a break). Keep going straight ahead at the junction then simply follow the road to the peak. The walk should take between half an hour to an hour. Getting back down involves either walking back the same way or taking the cable car or slide down to Labour Park.</do>

Warning: You It has been reported that you cannot get on the Bangchui Island. Both , both the small speed boats and large sightseeing boats will take you about two kilometers away from the island. The ticket salespeople will tell you, you can get on the island, but that is just a scam!!!You can get to the island by using the tourist ferries that leave from Tiger Beach.
