The Port of Tianjin is the largest man-made port in China and one of the most important seaports in the country. Located a short 34 miles from Tianjin, the 3rd largest city in China with a population of slightly more than 10 million, this is not a really popular tourist destination but is considered to be the gateway to Beijing. Besides being a very active maritime center, the city of Tianjin is an ethnically diverse, cosmopolitan city filled with warm, friendly people.
