Plan B: DAN DONG FERRY
A traveler’s description of the Dan Dong Ferry: The ferry was small and there was no place to go except on deck or our smacubiclecal style beds. We stayed on deck until the sunset and we were too cold, then retired to our beds to read. Dan Dong is 6 hours by slow bus, north of Dalian, but it is on the North Korea border and you can see into North Korea. (http://www.serasphere.net/dalianletters/2005-05/korea.htm)
Plan C: Fly to DiLian.
