Take in Tianjin
Ride the Tianjin Eye, shop for souvenirs, and see the Great Wall
East meets West in this coastal metropolis in northeastern China, comprised of a picturesque blend of European-style houses and churches in Five Great Avenues, modern marvels like the Tianjin Radio and Television Tower, and historic gems like the Buddhist Dabei Temple. Visit the Porcelain House, exquisitely decorated with different types of Chinese porcelain, and enjoy sweeping views of the city from the Tianjin Eye, a giant 120-meter Ferris wheel on the Yongle Bridge over the Hai River. Stroll along the pedestrian street of Guwenhua Jie, lined with colorful shops and temples, as well as vendors selling popular Chinese snacks like jianbing. You can also check out the impressive manmade Port of Tianjin, learn about local history at the Tianjin Museum, and tour the Taku Forts, a battle site during the opium wars between China and Great Britain. Venture north of the city to see a section of the Great Wall of China at Huangya Pass.
