This "West Part" track is 40-km return. There is an "East Part" Dalian Green-way Wikiloc totaling an additional 40-km return. Obtaining a card pass for the bike fleet requires a 400 RMB refundable deposit, ID, and some Mandarin speaking skill (the "East Part" Wikiloc has a more detailed description of how to access the Green-way bike fleet).

This track is centered at the main Skytrain station at Kaifaqu. It goes east of Kaifaqu, passing the Wanda Plaza Shopping and IMAX, and joining to the East Greenway Track. It also covers the segment west of the Kaifaqu Main Skytrain Station along dedicated bike lanes through downtown Kaifaqu and along the harbour front.

Bicycle Pass Purchase kiosk and Bike station.

Near the Main Kaifaqu Skytrain Station. The kiosk (see photo) is generally open to arrange the bike cards, and some Mandarin speaking skill is probably needed to do this. If closed in winter, the Green-way office handles bike cards, its one bike station to the east and just south of the Skytrain route.

Downtown Kaifaqu bicycle Path

The path crosses a busy intersection in front of the Bank of China headquarters building (clear traffic signals are usually obeyed here). there are bicycle paths on both sided going south towards the harbour. I found the east side was much easier to navigate, with less improperly parked car obstacles, and fewer pedestrian groups blocking in the bike lane. Make sure to have a bike with a good bell or ringer for this segment.

Spa, sauna

There are plenty of foot massage studios, spas and saunas along this part of the path. Its near the more exclusive expatriate residential areas of Kaifaqu.

This is the south end of the busy streets, and the greeway goes through a short forest segment before joining a wide avenue with broad shoulders that leads to the waterfront promenade.

This canal reverses with the tides and connects with a salt lagoon to the north, in the middle of a large high-rise residential development.
