Huangyaguan Pass

The Huangyaguan Pass is located approximately 128 kilometers north of Tianjian and 120 kilometers east of Beijing. The “Yellow Cliff Pass” was originally built in the Northern Qi Dynasty during the reign of emperor Tianbao (556) and later refortified during the Ming Dynasty Great Wall building campaign under the authority of Emperor Longqing. Built into a steep cliff, Huangyaguan’s majestic location as well as its expert construction and engineering make it a prime example of the Ming Great Wall.

Today, visitors enjoy a restored 3-kilometer stretch of Huangyaguan that features 20 watchtowers and the Great Wall History Museum.

Italian Style Street

The name, Italian Style Street is a bit of misnomer, as this small tourist town might be more aptly called Tianjin’s “Little Italy.” At the center of the Italian Style Street is the Marco Polo Plaza, named after the famous explorer who introduced Europe to China in the 13th century. Visitors enjoy night life, shopping and, of course, Italian food!

Five Great Avenues

Found in the affluent Heping District of Tianjin, the Five Great Avenues are parallel streets that feature the distinctive Western architecture reminiscent of Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. These buildings and residences are a nod to Tianjin’s international history where foreigners from around the globe have resided since the 1800’s.
