Due to its proximity, Tianjin has long been associated with Beijing and has acted as port to the Chinese capital Beijing. A high-speed railway connects the two cities, which is about 1-2 hours apart. Many people live in Tianjin and work in Beijing.

The fastest train service in the World, measured by peak operational speed is the Shanghai Maglev Train which reach 431 km/h (268 mph). Due to the limited length of the Shanghai Maglev track (30 km)(18.6 mi) from airport to Shanghai city center China, the maglev trains average speed is only 245.5 km/h (152.5 mph). The Shanghai Maglev train also holds the record for the fastest speed in tests of 501 km/h (311 mph).

a beautiful area
Due to the foreign influence,  Tianjin was a center for the China’s Self-Strengthening Movement, and Tianjin took the lead in China’s military modernization, the construction of railroads, telegraph, telephone, post, mining, modern education and legal systems.

The colonial architecture remains in the city, including Victorian, homes, Roman-style streets, French châteaux and German Bavarian villas. However traditional Chinese architecture is also abundant.

The Great Wall of China can be seen in the north of the city and Tianhou Palace, originally built during the Yang Dynasty though it’s been renovated many times since, has long been a site for people to pray for navigation safety and to honor the goddess of the sea. The city also houses China’s oldest existing wood-structural pavilion, the Dule Temple which has a 16-meter-tall statue of the goddess of mercy, one of the biggest in the country.

In recent years, it’s also been a hub for modern architecture, such as the Tianjin Museum.

History
Tianjin got it’s name from the Chinese emperor, also known as Tianzi, which means son of heaven. It’s also been called other names throughout it’s history, including Jingu and Jinmen.

Early settlements in Tianjin date to the Warring States period (475-221 B.C.), but it wasn’t until the Sui Dynasty (581-618) that the city became a major transportation hub with the opening of  the Great Canal in 610 A.D. The city linked the river and sea in North China.

During the Tang Dynasty (618-907), Tianjin was known for transporting grain and silk. In the Yuan Dynasty (1206-1368) it became an established sea ferry city. In the subsequent Ming Dynasty (1368–1644), it became a military powerhouse.

In China’s last dynasty, the Qing Dyansty (1644-1911), the city was attacked by British and French forces from 1858-1860 as part of the Second Opium War.

As a result of that war, China was forced to sign the Treaty of Tianjin, which allowed Western powers including the United Kingdom, France, Russia, and the United States to sign treaties with China granting them rights to trade on both the coast and interior of China along the Yangtze River. These nations were also allowed to establish legations, charge low tariff for imported goods, and legalize the trade of opium.

The city would remain largely under foreign control until 1943.
