Offering a glimpse into the turbulent history of Lushun, this excursion stops at a cultural museum, a former prison and a Russian-built fortress.

Depart from the pier and drive approximately one hour to the southernmost tip of the Liaodong Peninsula to Lushun, a port district that has been strategically important since the 3rd century. Also known as Port Arthur, Lushun has had a long history of military conflicts and hostile occupation.

You will visit a former prison built by the Russians in 1902. Up to 2,000 prisoners were once held here, and many of them suffered horribly. There's a room where confessions were coaxed and another room where those who didn't cooperate were hanged. The building is now a museum with poignant exhibitions promoting human rights and is considered one of China's most important national historical sites.

Your tour draws to a close with a final stop at a Russian-built fortress, the site of a key battle during the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905. Although the Russians were entrenched in the fortress and effecting heavy losses on the enemy, their general surrendered, mistakenly thinking that Lushun was falling because the Russian fleet had been destroyed. He was later court-martialed.

Following this visit, you'll re-board your coach and transfer directly back to the pier in Dalian.
