Additional Information on Expat Life in Dalian

Jutting out into the Yellow Sea, the city of Dalian lies in China’s densely populated northeast. Its history as a major port means that today it is one of the major transport and trade hubs in Northern China. The city has been growing economically for the last twenty years and continues to pull in major multinational firms. Most expats find the climate in Dalian fairly agreeable — the winters are cold and dry, but the summers are wet and humid, however neither seasons reach extreme temperatures. Mandarin is spoken almost universally in Dalian, and although there are a few differences due to the local dialect, for the most part it is quite standard. Expats can find it tricky to pick up at first, but after a few months you’ll start speaking Mandarin more and more. Dalian is an excellent city to start a new life in — make the most of your time abroad with InterNations.
