Beijing Tianjin Tour

Extend your Beijing tour to the metropolis Tianjin. Beijing Explorer provides Tianjin land service for those who want to experience an unforgettable urban life of once-foreign-concession and now a booming economic development area along Bohai Gulf in north China.

Tianjin is the one of the largest city in China and one of four municipal cities of China together with Beijing, Shanghai and Chongqing. Tianjin is divided into Old Town and Binhai New Area. The old town is located along Hai River which connects Yangtze River and Yellow River through the Grand Canal which was constructed during the Sui Dynasty in the 7th century AD. In the joint of South Canal and North Canal, it became Sanhui Haikou, the birth place of transportation civilization of Tianjin. Tianjin used to be called Zhigu, which literally means Direct Port. In 1404, Emperor Yongle of Ming Dynasty renamed the city Tianjin, which means Heavenly Ford, in remembrance of a campaign which won him the throne from his nephew. Later a fort of set up in Tianjin and the city was then named Fort of Tianjin. In 1860, Tianjin was opened to Britain and France for foreign trade. Thus, Tianjin became the home of foreign concessions from the late 19th century to 1940s. From 1949 to 1958, Tianjin was the municipal city in Hebei Province. Since 1967, Tianjin became a direct-controlled municipality.

The main tourist attractions in Tianjin include Dabei Monastery, Cultural Street, Food Street, Drum Tower, Hai River Park and Five Main Avenues.

The trains depart Beijing South Railway Station every 15 minutes daily from 06:30 in the morning until 22:25 in the evening.

With regards Beijing-Tianjin Day Trip by Train (BJTJ01), I would like to know if there are any non-private trips that allow me to split the cost with other travelers that books for the trip? I don't want to participate in the trip alone and pay such a high price. In anyway is there a chance for me to share the trip with strangers and book at a lower price?

Beijing-Explorer
