This could be a place for treasure hunt if you are into old stuff and have the time to dig. Sure, there are many newly made items that looked old but you can also find some good artifacts if you are interested. We had a...More

A bustling local cultural experience! Local snacks, local arts & crafts, artifacts and more!! A number of temples and other historical sites feed of this area. Worth a look when in Tianjin.

Whilst this may be an area depicting ancient culture, it is very modern and is basically a tourist trap where you can buy recently made "antiques" or jade like products. Visit if close by but not worth a special trip.

Built to look old, but isn't. Lots of shops featuring traditional crafts and arts. There's also a temple, but it was closed when we were there. Lots of restaurants. It's an ok area. Very touristy. And crowded.

I went to this place in the afternoon and it was really got (summer). This place provides you the ancient stores selling traditional goods, like painting, statues, and traditional jewelries. Just prepare 1 hour visiting this place.
