Tianjin, the port of Beijing, is a mix of intrusive modernity and atmospheric tradition in the city's former European, then Japanese, concession. New bridges and audacious buildings stand alongside a gently crumbling colonial district which is home to a delightful antique market and an old Chinese town which has been rebuilt in incongruous bright colours. Enjoy a stroll past traditional shops, where you'll see a limitless choice of souvenirs for sale.
