Set on the north-east coast of the Bohai Sea, Tianjin’s port opens up the city and serves as a gateway to Beijing - which lies approximately three-hours drive inland. Tianjin is a vast and impressive city in its own right, with oodles of character and charm – especially since it received a comprehensive facelift for China’s Olympic Games in 2008. There is deep international history here, as the area was conceded to foreign powers during the Opium Wars. View more

As a result, it’s peppered with historical buildings, temples and palaces, and you'll encounter a dizzying swirl of cultures. There is a distinctive European flavour in places - notably the architecture of the Five Avenues, which features a blend of historical buildings from Europe's past empires. The skyscrapers of modern China’s booming economy have also sprung up, along with ambitious structures like the flowing curves of the library. Unique creations like the Tianjin Eye span the river – a fusion between a ferris wheel and a bridge, it glows brightly over the river's water at night. The Ancient Culture Street is a traditional Qing Dynasty style stretch of bustling, living history. For most, however, the allure of one of China and the world’s mega-cities, Beijing, will be too strong a draw. Visit immense cultural treasures like the extraordinary Forbidden City, an incredible central labyrinth of 800 palaces. The vast and iconic Tiananmen Square stretches out close by - watched over by a ginormous Chairman Mao portrait - where you can see the Chinese flag ceremonially hoisted high into the sky each day, and a venue where dramatic and iconic events of Chinese history have played out. You’re also within reach of one of the world’s most recognisable landmarks - the undulating expanse of the Great Wall of China, which snakes across the area's mountains.

Forbidden City

Enter through the great gate into the vast complex that has been off limits to the public for over 500 years. Within its walls lies a maze of some 800 palaces built between 1417 and 1420 as the residence of the imperial clan. The 9,000 rooms require a permanent restoration squad that is constantly busy painting and repairing. Feast your eyes on the elaborate architecture, décor and furnishings that make the Palace Museum one of the most visited places in the world. (The huge complex requires an extensive amount of walking.)


Tiananmen Square

Next, proceed to Beijing's most famous square and the country's national symbol. The enormous square is dominated by the gigantic portrait of Chairman Mao. Since imperial days, Tiananmen Square has provided an impressive stage for declarations to the assembled masses.

Departing the port, a 75-minute drive takes you into Tianjin city. Home to nearly six million people, Tianjin boasts an interesting history as a foreign concession. Since the mid-20th century, Tianjin has been a centre of major industrialization and production of a wide range of consumer goods known for their excellent quality.


Upon arrival in Tianjin, a sightseeing drive through the city centre highlights the major points of interest. Its European architecture from the turn of the 20th century gives the impression of an outdoor museum, while new, high-rise buildings of glass and steel puncture the city's skyline.

The famous, 17th-century knives, wood plates and woodcarving paintings displayed here reflected the local citizenry's hopes for a better life amidst a turbulent society. The early paintings gradually formed their own characters with an auspicious festive tone, and today, locals decorate their homes with Yangliuqing New Year paintings ahead of the Chinese Lunar New Year. During your visit, marvel at the beautiful artwork and observe a local artisan make the painting using wood plates.
