Tianjin is one of those understated locations near Beijing that are often overlooked by families looking for a travel adventure. The family package has it’s own list of activities and things to do lined up but here are five must-do things to do while traveling to Tianjin:
Ferris Wheel, Eye of Tianjin
This is one of the attractions to the city that’s best to see at night or late afternoon, hopefully on a clear day. The wheel is a thrilling way to kick off soaking up Tianjin.
Dabie Buddhist Temple
This monastery is made up of old and new sections. Most monasteries were built in the Qing (1644 to 1911/12) and Ming (1368–1644) dynasties. This temple is well preserved, and there are plenty of religious and cultural relics worth visiting.
Tianjin Ancient Cultural Street
This is Tianjin’s version of Qianmen, which is a street filled with shops and booths selling groceries and souvenirs items. The historical context of the area is that the place for people to worship the Goddess of the Sea and boatmen.
This attraction is also named Qianyuan Garden, a famous residence that covers 3,360sqm and is inspired by Chinese and European architecture styles. This heritage site is under the special protection area of Tianjin and a good place for history lovers to check out.
This futuristic, swan shaped building spans over 50,000sqm and houses both Chinese ancient fine arts and Tianjin’s history.The museum is divided into three standing exhibitions halls; Selected Rare Relics, Origins of the Tianjin Culture, and Tianjin & Modern China. There are eight relics-themed exhibition halls which display calligraphies, paintings, jades, the Chinese blessing culture, Chinese stationery, and folks arts and crafts.
