The first evidence of settlemets in the Tianjin area were during the Warring Kingdoms (475-221 B.C.). Currently the city is China's third largest urban area. However, despite its size and importance as a port, the city lacks the vitality of other large Chinese coastal cities, and has been unable to attract the same degree of investment as places such as Guangzhou and Shanghai.
Tianjin Binhai International Airport (ZBTJ) is about 15 kilometers to the east of the urban area.
Tianjin Railway Station is the largest station in the city. It was first built in 1888 and then rebuilt in 1988. There are also several other railway stations in the urban area, Tianjin West and Tianjin North. Tanggu station serves the seaside district of Tanggu District, while Taida station is a small station located in in TEDA, 5 kilometers east to Tanggu station.
Taxis from Beijing and Tianjin cost about 50 yuan or 60 yuan per seat (4 seats in total) (but these may be illegal taxis).
Tianjin is well connected with other cities. The price from Beijing is about 30 yuan.
There is also two school bus lines linking Nankai and Tianjin Universities and Tsinghua University. They depart daily at 3:45PM and 4:45PM from Tsinghua North-West Gate.
Tianjin is connected to Dalian by passenger boat.
Founded in 1904, the Tianjin bus system was the first in China, and today the city is well served by its public transportation. Within the city, traveling on a bus line less than 12 kilometers will cost 1 yuan, while 1.5 yuan will cover a journey on a line over 12 kilometers - even if you travel less than 12 kms but on a line that is over this distance, the cost is still 1.5 yuan.
The old Tianjin metro was suspended in 2001, but after refurbishing was re-opened on 28 May 2006. In addition, a light railway line runs between the urban area of Zhongshanmen to the seaside area Donghailu in TEDA.
Taxis are abundant, and the price is not high. The flag fall for 3 kilometers is 8 yuan, and then a further 1.5 yuan is added for every kilometer after that. However, it is strongly recommended that you do not take a taxi from near the railway station.
