Somerset International Building Tianjin
Kissing the coast and merely 40 minutes away from the country’s capital city by train, Tianjin is a culture-rich transport hub for international commerce. It is here, right in the heart and soul of its central business district that Somerset International Building Tianjin lays.
Massive shopping centres such as the Exchange Building, Tianjin Emperor Place, ICTC and Centre Plaza are all within a 15-minute walk from the residence, as is the History Museum of the Five Avenues. On the weekend, pay the famed Yaxuan Teahouse a visit with your business associates. The classical teahouse is luxuriously decked with traditional mahogany furniture and delicate Chinese lanterns. It is said that one should savour the teas the way one would savour wines.
Adventurous travellers will be pleased to know that Tianjin is also blessed with a multitude of sights to behold. Enjoy everything from cultural and historical hotspots to untouched natural wonders, such as the Haihe River and Panshan Mountain, where walking, cycling and hiking tours can be arranged. The Huangyaguan Great Wall located slightly outside the urban city is also worth a visit. An annual marathon that draws international crowds is held here each May.
However, one should never miss the cultural sights in this city. The historical Astor Hotel, Dule Temple, Dagu Fort and Ancient Culture Street (Gu Wenhua Jie) are easily accessed via the close-by Xiao Bai Lou subway station located just 8 minutes away from the residence. Pay the hotel, temple and fort a visit to dig deep the city’s rich culture and history before taking a stroll down the Ancient Culture Street to sift among hawked wares such as authentic antiques, Zhang sculptures, calligraphy materials and Tianjin kites.
For food, treat yourself with the freshest catch of the day at the smattering of seafood restaurants located by the beach, or return to Somerset International Building Tianjin's vicinity for some chicken rice, stuffed buns or chewy hand-stretched noodles.
