    No surprises. But do if you visit. One of those things tourists must check on their list. Worth it in the end

    Typical tourist area with many different shops. Due to the virus we were probably the only Western tourists there. Many shops closed, but still worth a visit.

    Get a taste of Italy in China! A lovely place to walk when the sun is shining, have lunch and drink a coffee or glass of wine.

    We visited from our cruise ship docked in Tianjin port. 3 hour drive but worth it. Had the section almost to ourselves. Cannot recommend highly enough.

    The Five Great Avenues located in the center area of Tianjin. It is the most complete architectural complex of foreign buildings preserved in China so far, and is called the World Architecture Expo Garden of China. Many great men in history have also lived here. For example, Gu Weijun (First diplomat of the Republic of China. He was a member of the Chinese delegation to the Paris Peace Conference and the Washington Conference after the WWI), Xu Shichang ( served as president of the Republic of China), Liang Qichao (a member of China’s modernist reformers), Zaizhen (Qing dynasty clan, the last Qing Prince), and American President Herbert Hoover. Although some of the residences are now closed to visitors, there are still many of the most famous buildings you can visit and take photos of. If you really interested in this kind of building, take a stroll along the Hai River and you may find more.

    This place looks so different in the day and at night. It is definitely worth to take a stroll in the area at night as the view is just so beautiful. There is mixed of old and new buildings along the river and you will find yourself appreciating the beauty. How could 1 city integrate old and new culture in such a modern city.

    The church has been maintained incredibly well and offers a nice break from traditional Chinese architecture.

    It is one of the main attractions in Tianjin and quite unique. Worth the visit and the entry fee, but certainly not everyone style. Lots of old furniture inside displayed in some random way, but still worth to visit.

    The Astor Hotel is open to non residents for tea or coffee etc in the Victorian Lounge and for a small fee you can visit their private museum which gives a fascinating insight into the history of the building since 1863 but also of the various European concessions that traded in NW China in the late 19th century. Well worth a visit. We were fortunate to get a guided tour from the sole member of staff in the museum.

    Entrance fee is 5yuan. Some aggressive beggars in front of the entrance, target foreigners. Be careful. Temple itself is big and beautiful.

    Although quite out of the way a really beautiful and interesting place to visit. Not a lot of things displayed, but generally very different to other museums. The small display of the ancient working town is really interesting.

    But as everything in china distances are not what they seem to be. Not crowded. Had to leave my water bottle, cannot take it upstairs. And exit is from another side of the tower so you need to come back to the entrance in order to take back your bottle. Annoying. Views are ok. On a good clear day probably can see Beijing lol just kidding.
