After breakfast, pick you up at your hotel. Today your trip starts from the North Jiefang Road Financial Street, the “Wall Street in the East”. Later, move on to the Five Great Avenues (Wudadao Area) where you can see over 200 beautiful examples of Italian, German, French, Spanish and British architecture with different style mixed in with old Chinese villas that showcase the modern history of China.
Then you’ll visit Jingyuan Garden, a Spanish-styled brick structure that built in 1921 with the original name of Qianyuan Manor. It is the former residence of the Last Emperor of Qing Dynasty - Puyi. Later, continue to visit Shi Family Mansion, which is a large and well-kept civil residence made up of 12 ancient-style quadrangle courtyards on both sides of a 60-meter-long road and a few additional elegant pavilions, pools and gardens. The architectural style and all the decorations fully represent the folk culture and custom of the late Qing Dynasty (1840-1912) and show the rise and fall of the 200-year-long history of the Shi Family in Yangliuqing, one of the richest families in old Tianjin. Now it serves as the folk custom museum in Yangliuqing which has a large collection of folk arts like Yangliuqing New Year paintings, brick sculpture, etc.
Finally, explore Tianjin Ancient Cultural Street, where you can enjoy the special architectural styles, take folk crafts, and taste the delicious local snacks.
After the tour, transfer to Tianjin Railway Station to take a bullet train to Beijing (about 30 minutes). The local guide will meet you at Beijing South Railway Station and escort you to the hotel.
