I personally don't really like Tianjin (boring!) but if you're in Beijing, then you should probably go there once just to tick it off your "things to do" list. I guess one of the highlights of Tianjin is the Western style architecture left behind from colonialism. Many of the streets make for a picturesque stroll. Not too familiar with what areas are best but below is an article that might point you in the right direction.

People in Tianjin brag about their local food like the plated sesame sticks and goubuli baozi. They also have their own version of the jianbing but I personally prefer the one with the crispy thing in the middle (theirs has a soft deep fried dough thing in the center). But you should probably try some street food when there just to compare and decide for yourself.

I spent a few days there and found little of interest. Probably my least favourite place I have visited. As far as the Western style architecture it was just like being in any run of the mill Western suburb so not worth a visit to those areas. I also went to where the transit railway ends and there is an area that they have tried to fix up into a bit of a touristy area near the river, some nice statues, boardwalks jet boat rides and an old passenger ship that is now some sort of resturant. This area like many places in China was now pretty much deserted and slowly decaying. Lots of heavy industry on the outskirts so also very poluted. Not recomended.

Short answer is no not really but it depends on what you like. If your here for a day the TV tower is nice if your lucky enough to have a blue sky day. Shopping is here all the time. The river walk area along the Haihe is nice. If your down south in Nankai the water park is nice. It's not what I consider a water park though. It's just a nice park with a big lake. Stay out of the zoo though if you have any compassion for animals.

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
