Tianjin, located in northeastern China and just a short train ride from Beijing, is a bustling metropolis with a rich history, vibrant culture, and a unique blend of Chinese and Western influences. Here's a guide for tourists visiting Tianjin:

Historical and Cultural Attractions:
Tianjin Ancient Culture Street (Guwenhua Jie): This pedestrian street is lined with traditional Chinese-style buildings and shops selling arts, crafts, and souvenirs. Visitors can also enjoy street performances, local snacks, and cultural activities.

Tianjin Eye: This iconic Ferris wheel offers panoramic views of the city skyline and Hai River. It's especially stunning at night when the city lights are illuminated.

Italian Style Street (Wudadao): Located in the former British concession area, Wudadao features over 2,000 European-style buildings dating back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Visitors can admire the architecture, visit cafes and boutiques, and take guided tours to learn about the area's history.

Porcelain House (China House): This unique attraction is a mansion adorned with millions of porcelain fragments, creating intricate mosaics and sculptures. It's a fascinating example of modern Chinese art and architecture.

Modern Attractions:
Tianjin Binhai Library: Known for its futuristic design, this architectural marvel features a massive spherical auditorium surrounded by bookshelves that appear to float in mid-air. It's a must-visit for architecture enthusiasts and book lovers alike.

Tianjin Haihe Cultural Square: This waterfront promenade along the Hai River is a popular spot for leisurely strolls, boat rides, and cultural events. Visitors can enjoy views of the city's landmarks, including the Tianjin Eye and the Tianjin TV Tower.

Culinary Delights:
Tianjin Cuisine: Sample local specialties such as Goubuli Baozi (steamed buns filled with meat and vegetables), Jianbing (Chinese-style crepes), and Erduoyan Fried Dough Twists (a crispy snack made from twisted dough).

Guifaxiang Mahua: These twisted, fried dough snacks are a beloved Tianjin delicacy. Visitors can watch as vendors prepare them fresh on the spot and enjoy them hot and crispy.

Practical Tips:
Transportation: Tianjin has a well-developed public transportation system, including buses, subways, and taxis. The city is also easily accessible by high-speed train from Beijing and other major cities.

Language: Mandarin Chinese is the official language, but English may not be widely spoken outside of tourist areas. It's helpful to learn a few basic phrases or carry a translation app.

Weather: Tianjin has a temperate climate, with hot, humid summers and cold winters. The best times to visit are in the spring and autumn when the weather is mild and comfortable.

Tianjin offers a fascinating mix of historical charm, modern attractions, and culinary delights, making it a rewarding destination for tourists. Whether you're exploring ancient streets, admiring futuristic architecture, or savoring local flavors, Tianjin has something to offer visitors of all interests.

End stress, anxiety, depression and negativity, and change your life – don’t miss it
One hour - watch it all, it really could change your life (it tells you how, and it's easy). Feel helpless, unhappy or lost ? You can change, and be the real you. How to become the adult in the room (let go of all the nonsense we carry over from childhood and those insecurities). By acting the way you want to be, ignoring the conditioned feelings that get in the way. Stop feeling down, and start being great. One cannot wait till one feels like it; that will never happen; get started by acting the way you want life to be. Stop feeling hurt and start acting with love. It's not about realising the fantasies we currently live by (intellectually), but acting to get real in life. When you stop being who you are, you can become who you should be. The voice in your head that knows all this - that voice is who you really are. Ignore the feelings from the past, and start really living in the present. Biggest regret of so many will be that they didn't live the life that they should have, didn't be who they really were. With Mel Robbins and Mark Hyman ...
