The most beautiful city I have visited in China is Tianjin. ...It is an ancient city where you see the mix culture between Chinese and European. Awesome. There are many European buildings because in the past Tianjin was the place for Europeans to live. To get Tianjin, it is easy. Just take bullet train. You will only need 30 minute... More

This is both the first and last place I visited on my trip to Tianjin as it is close to my hotel and on my way to a mall. This place is nothing special. Typical souvenir shops that all have the same things. If you're close, go for it but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.

The ancient cultural street in Tianjin is, on the surface much like any other ancient cultural streets in other Chinese cities. You can find many similar things being sold. However, Tianjin's cultural street is unique for 3 shops. One is actually a museum and the other two are shops. They exhibit or sell Tianjin's unique art form - 泥人张 -... More

It's a nice beautiful area for sightseeing and take some nice pictures. Most of the stores are well decorated, lots of stores sell local products and souvenirs, also lots of snack varieties sold.

The Ancient Culture Street is the only place like that in Tianjin. There are a lot of shops with a lot of "traditional" items. If you are a foreigner, don't hesitate : BARGAIN ! I bought a nice Qipao there (traditional dress) and a carved seal and some other gifts for my friends back home. I also like to walk... More

Went there for a walk to sightsee. Most of the stores sell similar stuff and after a while, everything looks the same. Nevertheless, still good for some photography along the streets.

We visited ancient culture street in 2 places in Tianjin. Imrge shops are like little treasures and good for souvenirs. We bought silk chinese dresses at better prices. It's like seeing a different side of the City. My most enjoyable part for shopping

I first went to Ancient Culture street when it was comparatively new, ie three years old despite its name. I've gone most years since then, but this year there is a real difference. A lot more shops, with more variety, actually somewhere reasonable to eat rather than dubious street food, but some of my favourite original shops still there with... More

Nice spot to shop and get some cheap souvenirs. Most places only take cash but they have a good variety of goods.
