    Great place to visit and really worthwhile. Was hectic busy on a Saturday night. VERY IMPORTANT - Book and buy your tickets online before. It is very popular with locals.

    We visited from our cruise ship docked in Tianjin port. 3 hour drive but worth it. Had the section almost to ourselves. Cannot recommend highly enough.

    Typical tourist area with many different shops. Due to the virus we were probably the only Western tourists there. Many shops closed, but still worth a visit.

    The Five Great Avenues located in the center area of Tianjin. It is the most complete architectural complex of foreign buildings preserved in China so far, and is called the World Architecture Expo Garden of China. Many great men in history have also lived here. For example, Gu Weijun (First diplomat of the Republic of China. He was a member of the Chinese delegation to the Paris Peace Conference and the Washington Conference after the WWI), Xu Shichang ( served as president of the Republic of China), Liang Qichao (a member of China’s modernist reformers), Zaizhen (Qing dynasty clan, the last Qing Prince), and American President Herbert Hoover. Although some of the residences are now closed to visitors, there are still many of the most famous buildings you can visit and take photos of. If you really interested in this kind of building, take a stroll along the Hai River and you may find more.

    This place looks so different in the day and at night. It is definitely worth to take a stroll in the area at night as the view is just so beautiful. There is mixed of old and new buildings along the river and you will find yourself appreciating the beauty. How could 1 city integrate old and new culture in such a modern city.

    This mall is very big and clean! Ran into inside the mall because it was 38 degrees out there in Tianjin! My friend and I had refreshing desserts at Honeymoon Desserts, taste really good! Then I did my hair done at MQ Studio Salon, the stylists seems pretty good with the technique! After I got my hair done we went to The Green Party, it’s a store where selling cute stuff with affordable price, good for souvenirs!!

    Free entry, just like all Chinese museums as far as I know. Not a big museum but plenty of treasures to appreciate and learn about background. If you come on a right day, there are guides around to explain the history and stories surround the exhibition items. The place is always quiet, unless it's during the public holiday period.

    The church has been maintained incredibly well and offers a nice break from traditional Chinese architecture.

    Whilst wandering the ancient town then you will no doubt stumble across the Tianhou Palace...and at just 10 yuan entry, it is well worth popping in. It isn't a huge place but is a nice walled sanctuary away from the over commercialised ancient culture street. There are many side temples with various and sometimes very unusual looking gods. They have a large bell here too which an elderly security guard beckoned us to gong with the wooden baton. We did and was quite loud and cool to do...the security guard then beckoned us to leave a donation in the collection pot. I was going to leave a small offering anyway (might as well hedge my bets for when I do pop my clogs...one never knows and it is good to be prepared haha). Anyway, just as I popped a couple of yuan in the pot, another security guard comes over and ushers us out of the palace before gesticulating and reprimanding the older security guard for cajoling money from us. I was offering anyway so the older security guard is absolved I think :-)
    Definitely worth popping in...

    In the photo we can see the most prestigious alumni of Nankai, Premier Zhou Enlai. Mr. Zhou Enlai is an outstanding alumnus of Nankai University and an admirable premier of China. Carved in white marble, the statue of Premier Zhou stands upright in the southern square of the Main Building. The statue is three meters high, standing on a two-meter-high stone base. It is a masterpiece of two famous sculptors in China, Mr. Fu Tianchou and Mr. Gu Jiarui. In the front of the stone base is the famous motto of “I Love Nankai University”.

    This is a nice museum and, even better, free of charge! We spent about two hours there and, although not all the signs are in English, found that there was plenty to keep us interested. There are models of dinosaur skeletons, animals and insects, as well as a good collection of minerals and rocks. After the museum, it’s an easy five minute walk to Galaxy Mall where you can grab some lunch.

    Get a taste of Italy in China! A lovely place to walk when the sun is shining, have lunch and drink a coffee or glass of wine.
