Although it is an university, it's not for sightseeing. It is very beautiful, peaceful and historical that you can't miss it. It established by U.S. around WWI and it kept some U.S. style buildings and facilities. You must visit the old library and there is a crystal library and it is made by glasses. It also displays some pictures showing... More

I went to visit Tsinghua University with my colleague who visited her friend working here. I was quite surprised when entering this campus...as it has beautiful lakes and during the summer months the lakes are full with beautiful lotuses. The big weeping willow tress nearby add on to the serene and peaceful surrounding. I visited during summer and visiting this... More

This is a University campus (next to Peking University). You can view both the old buildings and the newest (super modern) ones, and learn about the university education through the Chinese history. I recommend you cross the campus, by walk, bike or car, for a glance at busy students, who form the elite of the country's administration, technology and business.

Huge clean campus, clean air-conditioned buildings, nice little green yards and plants in the middle. Academics have good understanding of English, but most of them have studied abroad. Very impressive!

Famous university with its own nice extensive campus in west Beijing. There is a nice courtyard restaurant inside the university which serve tasty Beijing cuisine. Recommend to find time to try it but may need to be invited by a member of staff.

Is China finally shedding its lack of confidence in itself,as manifested in the exaggerated reverence given to those with foreign degrees? Not yet,for even in Tsinghua,those with overseas experience still get treated a cut above the rest,several cuts,in fact. The physical infrastructure is there,buildings,parks,equipment.The students are eager to learn,the teachers diligent. Over the past few years,there is even a belief... More

Historically, construction in Tsinghua University was actually originally funded by the US Government, so Tsinghua has some visible America influence in its architecture. Personally I like the traditional elements at Tsinghua University. The Pagodas, the pavilions, the lotus flower pond, bridges and hills were just part of a traditional and beautiful Chinese garden. No wonder the campus was part of... More
