Haihe River tour

The Haihe River meanders its way through Tianjin and has often been referred to as the "Seine of the Orient." Tourists can boat along the river and take in the beautiful scenery while savoring local snacks.

"The Seine is beautiful, but it feels better to tour around Haihe," said Klaus Schwab, president of Davos Forum.

Jinwan Plaza is a modern, European-styled building on the bank of Haihe River. It also has theaters, cinemas, restaurants, shopping malls, and other types of entertainment activities on offer.

There are 21 bridges over the Haihe River and each constitutes scenic attraction, forming a distinctive bridge culture. Rising over the spectacular Yongle Bridge is the world's largest ferry wheel.
