As a northern Chinese port, and the third largest in China, Dalian has a well developed water transport network.

The Passenger Port is located at the northern end of Wuwu Lu in the eastern end of the Liaodong Peninsular. A shuttle bus is available which take passengers from the Waiting Hall to the docks. We suggest you arrive at the passenger port at least half an hour before your scheduled departure time.

Scheduled passenger ships leave for Yantai, Weihai, Tianjin and Penglai. Passenger ships depart for Changhai County daily. Ships also sail for Incheon, Korea every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Another good thing about arriving by ship is that some the passenger ships can transport private cars so that you can drive your own car in the city.

 Long-distance Bus
The city is situated at the tip of the Liaodong Peninsular and has two main highways that extend northeastward to cover the peninsular. One is the Shenyang-Dalian Speedway, which connects the city to Shenyang, the provincial capital city of Liaoning, and runs parallel to the 202 national highway. The other is the Yellow Sea Speedway, starting from Dalian running along the coast to Dandong, another important city, next to the 201 national highway. This makes the connections between Dalian and the other four major cities, namely Shenyang, Liaoyang, Dandong, Qinhuangdao, very convenient.
