Travel advices and warnings Tianjin
Tourism Being so close to Beijing, Tianjin has always had close links to this neighbouring city, which lies to the north-west. Over the years, the fortunes and prosperity of these two prominent cities has been closely connected and Tianjin has also been especially important, due to its nearby port and setting alongside Bohai Bay and stretch of the historical Grand Canal.
Tianjin is a spreading municipality, with many large expanses of rural areas and farmland. Various sights, tourist attractions and monuments are dotted all over the city, although Tianjin city centre itself is fairly compact and easy to walk around. Central Tianjin is divided by the Hai River and this is a useful point of reference, with the railway station lying to the north of the river.
Culture People from urban Tianjin speak Tianjin dialect, which comes under the Mandarin subdivision of spoken Chinese. Despite its proximity to Beijing, Tianjin dialect sounds quite different from Beijing dialect, which provides the basis for Putonghua, official spoken language of the People's Republic of China.
Cuisine Tianjin cuisine places a heavy focus on seafood, due to Tianjin's proximity to the sea. Prominent menus include the Eight Great Bowls, a combination of eight mainly meat dishes. It can be further classified into several varieties, including the rough, smooth, and high. The Four Great Stews refers actually to a very large number of stews, including chicken, duck, seafood, beef, and mutton.
Tianjin also has several famous snack items. Goubuli is a traditional brand of baozi (steamed buns with filling) that is famous throughout China. Guifaxiang is a traditional brand of mahua (twisted dough sticks). Erduoyan is a traditional brand of fried rice cakes.
