Q: Lesser know tourist places in Tianjin

I have been in Tianjin only a short time, but would appreciate advice/suggestions on off-the-beaten-track places of interest for visitors who will be arriving soon. Thanks !!

EDIT: I have looked online, but personal recommendations are usually more interesting !

Hmm. I spent 2 nights in Tianjin and can't say there's a great deal going on. I did enjoy the concession on the riverbank and the European building area (forget the name). The Italian Town is pretty fake and touristic. Bought some fancy Italian chocolates - 5 for 50 RMB. Ate them all in one go and was sick. Mental.

I visited Tinjin once and i'm pretty sure the place I visited was a lesser known place. Although the tour bus said the place we visited was supposed to be famous or important in some way couldn't see much going on there. It was a big open space they had several little stores and they did actually have some interesting art pieces there...can't remember the place, but it was somewhere in Tinjin....Thereis a look of Tianjin...

Well, you can travel to Beidaihe (seaside resort), part of Qinhuangdao town, just 2 hours away from Tianjin. In Tianjin there isn't much to see, except the Italian town and some good parks. Have you been to Beining Park? It's near Tianjin North railway station. It's very beautiful and has some nice old towers and pagodas. Erm....Try to discover small towns near Tianjin (Shanhaiguan for instance), it's cheap and there's the sea! I live and teach in Tianjin university, so if you are interested, contact me, we could discover places together or just walk around Tianjin. My QQ is 2244564534@qq.com. My name's Olga. Smile

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
