Technically it is not Dalian news, but we wrote it anyway as shenyang city is very close to Dalian, its development will also impact many lives here.

The 80 billion investment will be in such areas: Cultural Tourism, International Hospitals and International Schools (K12 education). 

Clearly Wanda Group is targeting world class in these areas.

before we talk, let's listen...

Elena has been a big part of independent music in Dalian. I was there when she was performing the last show as a member of 'The Lazy Dreamers' at Hertz Bar (later moved to heishijiao and called 赫兹空间).  We also wrote about her in "Human of Dalian", I wish we could wrote deeper stories about her and life of artists in the city. Click to read her story.
