“Nice spot for shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2014

I enjoyed that the shopping area was clean and not crowsed. I bought a nice dress for my daughter.
I loved the 5' high vases but they would not pack to well in my suitcase. Seveal wood furniture stores with very nice pieces I would like to own.

“Drum Tower”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Like all drum tower. I didn't went out. Just look outside. The best part is that street. Very beautiful with a lot of tipical hutongs.

“Good old street vendors and Chinese art and craft.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

Went there recently. Very interesting with many old trade art and craft. Plenty to see for all ages. Only regret not enough food outlets. Don't missed the Clay Man Zhang shop. Pretty clay figurines that require good mastership.

“A must see if you are in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

We visited the drum tower as we were in the area. 20rmb or 30 for the drum and bell tower. There is a very steep climb up to the tower but worth it for the drum demonstration. Normally every half past the hour from 930.

“A must in Tianjin...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

A visit to Tianjin would just not be complete without a stroll around Drum Tower. A great place for taking pictures, picking up souvenirs, snacks and a chance to talk to some local people. We live within a five minute walk and we often find ourselves there, even if it is just to pass through to somewhere else we always take a walk through Drum Tower. Food is cheap, people are friendly. If you can find him, a street vendor called Clark is a great guy. He runs a cold noodle store with him mum and dad, he speaks pretty good English and will happily spend hours chatting with you and he always has a good supply of cold beers handy. The Drum Tower is really a gem and best visited during the summer of at festival times when it is even busier.
