Firstly, the most-visited tourist spot is undoubtedly the eye of Tianjin. This giant Ferris wheel is a huge attraction for all tourists as you can get a 30-minute ride on it and get a 360-degree view of the city from atop! Do not forget to take your camera along as you will want to take several photos from there. If you are a fan of impressive architecture then you must visit the Five Great Avenues and also, the Tianjin Haihe Cultural Square. Both have fabulous European style buildings and you can even ride a horse-driven carriage!

Once you are done exploring the historical side of Tianjin, strut along the Italian Style Street. This was formerly the Italian concession area so you will surely experience dolce vita in these streets. Enjoy a slice of pizza or pasta and walk around the dreamy Marco Polo Square. You can also go to Ancient Culture Street and experience the past. The place is filled with old-style street peddlers, eateries and shops. This will give you a feeling of how China really was before. 

If you have a day to spare, then we suggest you go to the Huangyan Pass at the Great Wall. This is less crowded than the one in Beijing and thus, you will be able to enjoy it better.
