Tianjin Shopping

Tianjin has both modern shopping malls and distinctive traditional stores, both of which will fulfill your desire. Binjiang Dao Business Street and Heping Lu Business Street are the busiest and most prosperous shopping centers in Tianjin. Most of top malls or department stores can be found on these two streets, like Quanye Chang, Isten Department Store, Jinhui Shopping Square, and so on, of which Quanye Chang is the most famous.


Gu Wenhua Jie needs a particular mention here. Traditionally designed stores line either side of the street, dealing in paintings, calligraphy, jade, or other renowned Chinese arts and crafts. It is a good place to find souvenirs and enjoy the architectural spectacle. To some extent Gu Wenhua Jie is like Shuyuan (Academy of Classical Learning) Gate in Xi'an.


A variety of Tianjin specialties will provide you many choices for commemorating your visit to this beautiful city, such as Yangliu Qingnian painting, Wejin kites, Niren Zhang painted sculptures, paper-cuts, etc. You can visit Gu Wenhua Jie, Yilin Ge, Wenyuan Ge for inspiration, and to buy.


If you are willing to spend time to wander around the stores and malls, you will surely find the perfect gift or memento.

You can take intercity train from Beijing South Railway Station to Tianjin Railway Station with 30 mins. Then take metro Line 9 to Shimin Square Station (Exit A), and walk north of around 1km to your hotel.

Hi, Radhika, as I know, there are many campus of the university, so I will take the one in Weijin Rd, Nankai District as an example.
The Indian restaurants are not nearby, so you may take a taxi there. Jinchazi Indian Restaurant in 7 Qixiangtai Rd, about 2km northeast to the campus, and Indian Curry Rice in 14 Shou’an Street, which is about 5 km northeast.

As for the apartments, you may go to the Chunxiangli Community for the detailed information, which is about 4 km north to the school
