Tianjin is a major port city in northeastern China. Following the 1858 Treaties of Tianjin, several Western nations established concessions in Tianjin. The European-style houses, municipal buildings and churches in Wudadao (Five Great Avenues) are legacies of that period. Standing in contrast are the city’s many modern skyscrapers, including the iconic 415m-tall Tianjin Radio and Television Tower.
Tianjin is one of the four municipalities in China. Its name means ‘the place where the emperor crossed the river’. Facing the Bohai Sea, Tianjin, the one time imperial port, serves as Beijing’s vital gateway to the sea. In recent years it receives more and more attention from visitors due to its illustrious historical heritage and other natural resources.
Getting in and out of the city is convenient because of the well-planned transportation system. If you want to come by water, there are a series of international and domestic sea routes in the port of the city, which is the biggest man-made port in the country. If you plan to arrive by air, Tianjin Binhai International Airport offers excellent service. Planes have routes that reach most of the major cities in the country and also cities in Europe and America. Of course, arriving by land is another option, while trains or long-distance buses are yet another alternative.
Various hotels, guesthouses and hostels can also meet your different needs. In addition, there are all types of entertainment available to relax both your body and mind.
