Tianjin (B, L)
Sightseeing: Tianjin Museum, The Memorial to Zhou Enlai and Deng Yingchao, Shi family Manson, Tianjin Culture Street
Today we will first visit Tianjin Museum. Tianjin Museum is the largest museum in Tianjin, exhibiting a range of cultural and historical relics significant to Tianjin. The museum lies in Yinhe Plaza in the Hexi District of Tianjin and covers an area of about 50,000 sq metres. The unique architectural style of the museum, whose appearance resembles that of a swan spreading its wings, has meant that it is quickly becoming one of the city's iconic buildings.
Then move on to The Memorial to Zhou Enlai and Deng Yingchao is dedicated to the memory of Premier Zhou En-lai and his wife, Deng Yingchao, and features photos, documents and dioramas of significant events in their lives. The museum is located near the Tianjin Water Park.
Afterwards, then go to visit the Shi family Mansion, The Shi Mansion, located in the 1,000 year-old town of Yang Liuqing, was the old residence of the Shi family, one of the eight prominent families in Tianjin in the Qing Dynasty, and was called the "No.1 Mansion in North China."
It covers an area of 6,080 square meters and has four rows of buildings of antique brick, wood and stone carvings. The mansion has been opened as Yang Liuqing Folk Customs Museum. There is a 300-meter-long street which covers an area of 20,000 square meters, on both sides of which stand houses in Ming and Qing styles, with a total floor space of 10,000 square meters.
Walk around the Tianjin Food Street and have typical Chinese lunch there. After lunch, you will be taken to Tianjin Cultural Street for exploring Chinese antique. Ancient Culture Street has more than a hundred small shops which sell old books, antiques, jade, traditional handicraft articles, folk craft, Yang Liuqing folk paintings, Zhang color clay figures, Wei's kites, Liu's brick carvings, Peking enamel, double-sided embroidery, paintings and many other articles.
Sightseeing: Panshan Mountain, Dabei Temple
After breakfast, visit the Panshan Mountain which is famous for its beautiful landscape in china, Panshan Mountain is sinuous and tortuous, has no fixed direction and its form looks like a dragon, so it is also known as Panlong Mountain (coiling dragon mountain). It is located in the north of Guanzhuang Town, Jixian County, Tianjin City, and 12.5 kilometers northwest to the town. It is one of the southern branches of Yanshan Mountains. There are many sites in the area of Panshan Mountain, including the famous Three Spiral Positions (pine resort in the upper spiral position, stone resort in the middle spiral position and water resort in the lower spiral position), the Five Peaks (Guayue Peak, Zilai Peak, Zigai Peak, Jiuhua Peak and Wujian Peak) and the Eight Stones (Xuankong Stone, Yaodong Stone, Liangjia Stone, Jiangjun Stone, Jiamu Stone, Tianjing Stone, Hama Stone and Mang Stone), altogether four scenic spots and more than 30 views.
Then we will proceed to visit Dabei Temple. Founded in 1658, Dabei Buddhist Temple is located on the middle section of Tianwei Road in Tianjin. It is a famous ancient Buddhist monastery which once held the holy ashes of Xuanzang, a monk of the Tang Dynasty. The temple complex can be divided into the east and west courtyards. The west courtyard is the original of the Qing Dynasty and is comprised of the Cultural Relic Hall and the Abbot Hall. The east courtyard consists of the entrance gate, Tianwang Hall, the Main Shrine Hall, Dabei Hall as well as Xuanzang's Memorial Hall.

Dear Nora,Thank you again for such excellent arrangement under the rushed condition. I enjoyed the tour with excellent English guide. Whenever I visit historical cities, I usually join guided tour. In the guided tour especially in European countries, the guider usually prepares a presentation with picture files or using notepad for audience' better understanding. Sometime oral explanation is not sufficient. Anyway i have not seen such presentations from other tour groups around today. Again, my guider today was excellent to give me overall and essential points in the history. Driving was also gentle. All the best for your business. Ki Seob

Dear Nora Thank you so much for having arranged great tour for us! The visits were well arranged and we wish if we had more time then we can visit more attractions.All guides are super! Knowledgeable and have good commands of English, good sense of humor. We like them all!Transportations were ok but can not give them max points due to their ages! Drivers were all nice. Hotels in Beijing, Xi’an and Nanjing are great! Great location, well equipped, nice room and good breakfast. Hotel in Luoyang is an old style, simple breakfast, but we understand that they are in the same situation as the city. Near the Peony Hotel, I saw a new small hotel near by but I did not come in to check. I am thinking it may be better to use new small hotel than big old ones.In Shanghai, we are very disappointed about hotel. Room small, dirty, poor facilities. Breakfast is poor. Location is so so, not so convenience. I think you should find another option for your future bookings in Shanghai. Meals: the guide helped us to choose dishes and we really enjoyed. Except in Beijing, because of timing inconvenience due to traffic, we ask the guide to arrange the near by restaurants for quick food, all others were great. In General, we are all happy with your services. Hope will have the chance to come back with you for more tours in China and surely, I will recommend you and your company for my tour company friends! Nora, once again, thank you for your great work! My best regards Bich Ha

I hope this letter finds you well. We finally arrived home from our trip last Thursday the 17th. As promised I am writing to you about our experience in China and we thank you very much for your organizing. On the whole we had a wonderful time and were very well looked after by both guides and drivers we would especially like to thank Linda and Cynthia which we would highly recommend. They both gave really excellent service in every way including punctuality, information and restaurants that were chosen for lunches, the food was delicious. The cruise on the Huangpu River was cancelled because of bad weather which couldn't be helped so the guide offered us an Acrobatic Show which we enjoyed very much. We had a lovely time on day 3 to Tongli water town. Our stay in China was wonderful. Best regards, Kathleen Pam

Hi Sandy, Thank you for a great first tour together. I appreciate that it was a big commitment for you to be away from your office family for such a long time. I know you would have missed your young son a lot. I am also very grateful for your huge personal effort that you put into the detailed planning. The local guides were all great - Sally, Amanda Benny. Regarding the itinerary, I think we have an excellent itinerary for the beginning and the end, but the middle of the tour needs to be changed. Thank you again for all your excellent work. I look forward to visiting you in your home town for our first Tibet tour in August 2020. Jo I might travel up one day ahead of the group to meet you and have dinner with you. Best regards, Brod
