Busy campus environment; pretty much looked like a neighborhood with shops and grocery stores. One of the locations where my wife worked at a post office. Visited a very nice souvenir shop and grocery market that had delicious fresh fruit and food items/snacks we took back to hotel.

I liked the service and the environment / privacy. However Peking duck was not served. There were many other nice dishes

Very good dumplings and ex-pat bar. Fun small campus to look around on way to Summer Palace. Look for the sidestreet eats and bars with better beverage options.

My daughter attends as an exchange student and we visited her. Huge university in beautiful setting. There are a few lakes covered with lotus flowers. There is a quad with a large auditorium at the end, and a famous arch under which students pose when they graduate. Great student area in Wudokou. Excellent, cheap restaurants. Felt like I was back... More

The university was funded by the monies received by USA as a compensation in the wake of the Boxer Rising. The US government was generous enough to donate it to have a university built for Chinese students. It is one of the pretigious institutes of education in China. Visitors may be screened or given approval before being admitted

The Tsinghua campus is an old campus built in early 20th century on American model. Nothing extraordinary, it has a flavor of Harvard and Princeton, but it is in China... There are more interesting places to visit in Beijing, in particular the Yuan Ming Yuan garden, which is walking distance from Tsinghua.

It's a very peaceful campus and there are many places to explore and get lost in nature. You can almost imagine all the great scholars that used to walk the campus.

Pleasant to walk around. Lots of greenery. It's the most famous university in China. Worth checking the box.
