Once in the city, your tour begins with a visit to the Confucius Temple, built for the veneration of the philosopher, Confucius, and the sages and other philosophers of Confucianism. The Confucius Temple in Tianjin is the third-largest in China.
Confucianism plays a significant role in Chinese folk religion and other Asian countries. This temple and other like it were used for the administration of the imperial examination in China and Vietnam, and often housed schools and other study facilities.
You'll also visit the Ancient Culture Street -- a street that brilliantly showcases replica Qing Dynasty-style architecture. It opened on New Year's Day in 1986 and is located on the west bank of the Haihe River. Many stores here sell Chinese specialties, including the famous Zhang's Clay Figures, Yangliuqing folk paintings, and more. It's the perfect place to pick up a souvenir.
Finally, enjoy lunch at a local Chinese restaurant before you return to the ship at Tianjin's port.
