2-Day (overnight) Photo Walk & Talk to Tianjin – May 15th to 16th

Want to get out of Beijing and travel to a new city for a weekend of culture, history, great food and interesting sights? Join Cultural Keys for a fantastic two-day photo walk to Tianjin, Beijing’s under-appreciated neighbour! Only 30 minutes away, this city has a lot going for it – riverside walks, European architecture and delicious food!

On this overnight trip, we want to show you even more of Tianjin in the hope that you might come back another time to explore the city fully! Along the way, our guide will introduce the history of the city, its traditional crafts and foods, its most famous locations and of course, show you great places to take photos!


What is a photo walk?

A Cultural Keys Photo Walk & Talk is an opportunity to be guided to the best spots to take photos whilst also finding out something about them with a native speaking English guide. How do they differ from CK Heritage Walks? The emphasis is on a fun, informative and relaxing walk with friends with plenty of time for photos rather than lots of historical information.
