Laohutan Beach (Tiger Beach Ocean Park) was originally named by a legend wherein a young man fought bravely to defeat a fierce tiger and rescued a mermaid who became his wife after the heroic behaviors. Since then, the seashore where the battle took place has been called “Laohutan” which means “Tiger Beach” to mark the impressive love story.
Occupying an area of 1,180,000 square meters, Dalian Laohutan Ocean Park is the largest modern lido in China with a winding coastline of more than 4,000 meters. Featuring diverse species and exciting adventure, the park has been a “Zootopia” which houses hundreds of animals from the very deep in the ocean, to the very high above the sky; on the other hand, the theme amusement park, including a 4D cinema and entertainment facilities makes it a paradise for relaxation, adventure and excitement.
