If you find yourself stuck in Tianjin for business and the weather is nice, coming here and relaxing is one of the better things to do in the city. Very green in spring/summer. Since there are young people, you might even be able to strike up a conversation with some strangers in English.

Nankai University is a modern university with rich history. Founded since 1919, Nankai University has experience the second world war and one old building Singyuan Tang remained from the bombs can reveal the past profile of Tianjin in 1930. With two lakes,and a river in it, it is beautiful in four seasons.

There is actually a fair bit of history about the university, however it is not so easy to dig up. Best find a knowledgeable local to guide you if... More

This is a functional utility of the city and nothing more. The campus is average at best and does not compare with other international university campuses. You will see most of the favorable ratings are students themselves at the campus or visiting students at the campus and not really tourists. To come to China and make this a stop on... More

It is well located and have a good environment for students. Beside Tianjin University and plenty of good restaurants around, such Alibaba, Top Cafe, Helen, Aulare, Cozy, ... It worth a visit and chat with some students willing to learn English as exchange for teaching you Chinese.
