Tianjin Natural History Museum

What began in 1914 as a smart place to store dinosaur bones and stuffed birds has gradually evolved into one of the most recognized natural history museums on the planet. Its research contributions to science are many. Fortunately, from a visitor's standpoint, this has translated into a staggering display show. Six separate halls, ranging from animal ecology and marine shellfish to insects and aquatic creatures dazzle with sophisticatedly modern exhibits. The dinosaur exhibit in the Paleontology Hall is especially noted.

Ancient Culture Street

Depending on personal taste, this collection of stores and stalls is viewed either as a fiendish tourist trap, or as Tianjin's superstar attraction. False red and green painted wooden storefronts capped by elaborate pagoda styled tiled roofs canyon the street so as to resemble 19th century China. Yes, it is all fake, but yes it works. Souvenirs are plenty with a heavy emphasis on teapots, clay figurines, swords, musical instruments, coins and books. Restaurants are numerous too. Admission is free.

Dabeichanyuan Temple (Grand Mercy Monastery)

Listed as one of the largest Zen temples in northern China, this house of worship tilts the mind's proverbial “wow-meter” all the way into the red. It consists of two temples: Old and New. The Old was built in 1669 and features a dazzling display of Buddhist carvings. In 1940 the New was added and is best known for housing a gold-gilded Sykiamuni statue dating all the way back to the Ming dynasty. A vegetarian cafe is on site.

Tianjin Museum of Science and Technology

All of the wonders of the universe are explained in common layman terms at this wandering museum. Opened in 1995, the main building resembles a large bridge topped with a cresting sun, which sets the tone for what visitors can expect to find inside. All 318 exhibits combine fun and education through modern, computer enhanced interactive displays. The 300-seat planetarium enjoys star status with visitors for its 360-degree movie theater.

Shuishang Park

Given the incomparable beauty of this park, Tianjin's largest, it is difficult to comprehend that this was once a brick-making site. Opened in 1951, the park features three lakes (West, East and South), all perfect for floating about in rented rowboats. A constellation of 13 islets dot East Lake and are connected by a series of pedestrian arch bridges. Ornate pavilions and towers occupy each islet. The park also houses a kid's amusement center. Can you say “family fun?”

Seaside Amusement Park

Tanggu, a busy seaport that has shunned tourism for industry, is an unlikely location for this jovial amusement park. Yet, come summer and it jumps with humanity. Located about 30 minutes south of Tianjin on the Bohai Gulf, the park harbors the largest manmade beaches and waterslides in China. Constant blaring music piped in on the park's speakers adds to the park's carefree atmosphere. Waterslides cost an additional amount.
