A district steeped in history and military significance, Lushun Port Arthur, or “Lushunkou District” in China’s Dalian municipality presents military and history buffs with an intriguing cultural locale to explore. Savour the historicity of this area with a stay at a luxury serviced residence Dalian has to offer its corporate and leisure visitors. Consider checking into the Somerset Harbour Court Dalian as it presents you with a centrally located and elegantly appointed serviced apartment Dalian features for cultural tourists. The district of Lushunkou occupies a strategic locale on the very tip of the Liaodong Peninsula, as it is framed by a natural harbour that sparked the Russo-Japanese war of 1904. It has occupied pride of place as it bounced between Russian and Japanese rule, before finally landing under Chinese ownership after the Second World War. Today, the southern tip of the district is off-limits to international visitors, although Lushunkou has emerged a thriving modern metropolis that draws numerous visitors each year. You will encounter World Peace Park, which offers pristine views of the bay and is saturated with an aura of calm in line with its pursuit of heralding a call for global peace. You’ll also be able to embark on a luxury ferry cruise that will transport you between Lushun, Dalian and Yantai in Shangdong for an ideal daytrip to explore the area. The demographic of the area is also seeing a significant change, as many of the major universities in Dalian are moving their campuses to Lushunkou, in a move that will infuse a fresh dose of youthful vigour to provide a contrast to this locale steeped in history.
