Hebei and Tianjin Travel Guide : Composition of Natural and Historic. Hrsg.: Turtle Travel Edition
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikivoyage or other free sources online. Hebei is Beijing s forgotten cousin from the countryside: she s got less money, wears last year s fashions and can catch a chicken faster than a taxi, but she s still family. But while cuisine, language and favorite opera songs may overlap, the similarities end there. The capital is slick, modern and cosmopolitan; the province has more of a rough-edged charm comprised of grazing sheep, brown earth and fields of corn and wheat. Tianjin is proud of its impressive concession-era architecture, which lends the city a kind of shabby nobility. In the run-up to the 2008 Olympics, the city spruced itself up and many notable buildings have plaques detailing their histories. This book offers information on 2 North China regions - Hebei and Tianjin.
