I am looking at a cruise which includes a 3 night stop at Tianjin port. My problem is we visited Beijing in 2011 for 5 days and took tour to the major attractions.
We do not want to take the tours offered by the cruise as they cover what we have already seen. We are confident in sightseeing Beijing by ourselves.
Is the rail station close to the cruise port?
How many connecting trains to reach Beijing central district?
How long would it take by train and is the service regular?
What distance (km) and is it possible by taxi, or traffic too bad? Approx cost?
Is there much to see in Tianjin. 2 full days in port might be a waste and it may be best to select another cruise.
Appreciate all advice
I am going in Dec for 6 days, any recomendation where to stay & how to go the nearest snow ski resort in tianjin?

Is there any locker room or luggage room in Tianjin Railway Station?
I have bought a tour for 5D4N in Beijing. But I have booked my flight ticket to arrive in Tianjin 2 days earlier than Day 1 of tour and also my departure flight is a day after the last day of the tour itinerary. This means I have at least two and a half extra days on my own.
How much time should I spend in Tianjin? I arrive in Tianjin at about 3 pm and have two days before joining the tour.
Hi all, I have a few questions:
1. Will it be unwise to cycle in Tianjin? I have heard that the traffic in China is bad, and cars will not give way to cyclists or pedestrians, so I was strongly advised against cycling in Beijing. Yet I am still quite keen in exploring Tianjin by bicycle. Will it be equally unsafe?
2. For places like the Drum Tower and Wudadao, will they be walking or cycling distance from the Tianjin Train Station?
3. After the day tour in Tianjin, I would be returning to my hotel in Beijing. How safe is Tianjin and Beijing at night in general? What is the appropriate time to be back in our hotel at night?

We will arrive at the cruise port in Xingang in October 2009 and would like to go to the Tianjin Railway Station to take the bullet train to Beijing. I need information on how to get to the bullet train from Xingang cruise port. Can someone tell me the approximate cost of a taxi from Xingang port to the railway station? Or is there a light rail train between Xingang and Tianjin? Or would it be better to take the bullet train to Beijing from Tanggu instead of Tianjin? If so, what would a taxi cost to the Tanggu station?
We have been to China one before and love the country but it is sometimes hard to find information details from so far away.
Thank you for your help,

We've visited Tianjin before and loved our private day tour... the former concession area, the food mall, the culture street. We'll be arriving in Xingang again and we are wondering if it's possible to hire a taxi, with even a slightly English speaking driver, that would take us to Tianjin and show us around. There are a few sites we didn't see last visit and wondered if these are worth a visit... the Shi Family Mansion and/or a cruise on the Haihe River.
Many thanks for any suggestions... Sandy
I will go Tianjin nextweek and stay for several days

Iam living in Tianjin and i have long weekends, i can leave Friday night and come back on Monday night (to be back at tuesday morning) so i would like to start to see this country!!!
But everything is in chinese (i know, it is normal, but it is hard as well...) so i cant find out what are the places i can travel during the night arriving there in the morning, then stay two nights and come back on Monday night. Where to go? whre to find the train timetables?
And i have another question, someone told me that it isnt possible to buy a return ticket in China... that you have to buy one way and then get the other one, but then i may not be able to come back on Monday night and i have to work on tuesday afternoon!!!! Is there any way to buy a return train ticket? not in the station but i know you can go to some tourist agencies and they get you the ticket... can you ask them for a return ticket or do you have to pray to get the return ticket when you arrive to your destination?
