Teach English in Tianjin

Tianjin is located at northeast of North China, facing Bohai River on east and bordering the Yanshan Mountain in north. Only 30 minutes train ride from the capital city, Beijing, it was host to a number of events at the Olympic Games in 2008. A modern city nicknamed 'The Shanghai of the North', Tianjin is also blessed with an abundant variety of spectacular natural excursions.

Tianjin has a rich history that you'll see in the old British and Italian concession areas, the port and the many examples of European architecture. As China¡¦s third largest city with a population of over 10 million people, Tianjin is developing and modernizing rapidly. Fortunately, the city has retained an authentic Chinese way of life and you¡¦ll find the people to be extremely friendly and the city to be very safe and inexpensive.

The best known scenic spots and historical sites include the Panshan Scenery Area, the Park on the Water, the Garden of Tranquility, the Palace of Heavenly Empress and even a section of the Great Wall of China at the Huangya Pass.
