Dalian is opening its door to welcome international guests from all over the world, as the city in Northeast China's Liaoning province has developed tremendously since the founding of the People's Republic of China.
Transforming from a fishing village to an international tourism city, Dalian, dubbed the "Pearl of the North", has witnessed great changes in the tourism industry during past decades, especially since reform and opening-up, a tourism expert in Dalian said.
Peter Row, a Canadian who came to Dalian six years ago, extended congratulations on China's 70-year anniversary. He added that thanks to reform and opening-up, international friends can meet Chinese people, understand the culture, exchange ideas and benefit from one another.
