Tianjin, one of the five Central Cities of the People’s Republic of China, is one of the country’s most developed and vibrant cities. Serving as an important commercial and industrial hub of China, Tianjin is home to many multi-national firms and industries, powering its booming economy. It is also a popular tourist destination due to its many beautiful parks, cultural landmarks and attractions, and various recreational attractions.
Located in the Taggu District of the city of Tianjin is one of its most iconic and reputed areas, the Haihe River Bund. Home to several popular attractions, stunning structures and large buildings, the Haihe River Bund is one of the most bustling and popular attractions of the city attracting several tourists and locals each year.
Occupying an area of over 130,000m2 and stretching over 1km, the Haihe River Bund is an attraction like no other. The Bund is divided into four main regions; the business area, the high terrace scenic area, the gardening scenic area, and the entertainment area. The business area, like the name suggests, is home to several retail outlets and commercial streets. Both the high terrace and gardening scenic area offer visitors amazing sites of the strip of beach of this bund as well as the distant mountains and skyline.
The pedestrian strip along the bund is also a popular walk-way which is famous for the fountain located in the middle of the strip capable of shooting water as high as 170m up in the air! Another highlight of the Bund is the ‘sailboat shadow in the sea’, created by special structures resembling sails set at different heights in the air, thus creating a shadow of a sailboat. The Bund is also home to various entertainment and recreational centres and outlets making this landmark in Tianjin a must-visit destination for all those who visit here.
