It is in the north of the city and is actually a series of streets, built in typical Tianjin style featuring Qing style architecture. All the houses and shops are one-story or two, decorated with watercolor paintings and carved bricks whose themes are Chinese classical literature and legends. Visitors will be particularly impressed by the splendid replica classical architecture in the folk style of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).

Haihe River: The river is a crucial river in North China formed by the convergence of five rivers in Tianjin. Historically, it was open to navigation 1,800 years ago, and gradually became a junction for navigation in the Sui Dynasty (581-618). Through centuries of development, it became a trading center gathering a great influx of businessmen from around the nation. Today the former shipping center is a place for relaxation. Regions along the river present beautiful views starting from Sanchakou (a fork in the river) to Daguangming Bridge. Countless attractions along the banks make the river a popular holiday destination.
Porcelain House: The Porcelain House is a priceless building decorated with about 4,000 pieces of ancient porcelain, 400 pieces of jade stone carving, 20 tons of crystal and agate and million pieces of ancient Chinese ceramic chips. Originally a 100-year -old French style villa, the residence is a five-storied building with a total area of 3,000 square meters. Porcelain used to decorate the house can date back to the Han Dynasty. Visitors can almost find every type of chinaware from the house, which perfectly combines traditional Chinese architecture and western architecture.
