Why visit Tianjin ?

Tianjin location iamge - CruiseDirection

A variety of tourist attractions

Tianjin is a good place to explore

The new cruise terminal is located south of the Dongjiang port area of Tianjin or Xingang and covers some 1.2 million square meters.  The area developed in the first stage of the building project comprises 700,000 square meters and can accommodate 6 large cruise ships at a time.  The actual terminal building itself has a surface area of 59,000 square meters and can handle up to 4,000 cruisers, with a total of 500,000 passengers a year.  There is complementary high-speed Wi-fi access at the cruise terminal.

Use taxis or ship provided transportation. Beijing is about 90 km away.

Note: If you are embarking or disembarking in this port and have to travel from or to the airport in Beijing, allow plenty of time.

The Tanggu Railway Station is a 30 to 40-minute taxi ride away from port where you can take a bullet train to Beijing at up to 320kph.  Tickets are sold out of an ATM-like kiosk at the train station. You can choose the English option and use a credit card.  The train takes about 90 minutes.

Every large tourist town has at least one or more shopping malls for westerners. Often the only place one can buy larger clothing sizes. Although these malls are fun, please be aware that almost everything is fake and that the bargaining is hard. The quickest way often is to show with bills in your hand, how much you are willing to pay and then walk on. If they then gesture you back finalise the deal. Always stay courteous.

Restaurants are often found in clusters in certain parts of the city, recognisable by very colourful decorations to attract customers. Stroll by and look for restaurants that are patronised by Chinese families themselves. Most menus have pictures of the items served. Seafood in general is kept alive in large tanks. Eating out in China is a feast, with different etiquette, and in general quite lively. Enjoy the fun! Only drink bottled water even use that if you have to brush your teeth. Use common precautions when eating out.
