Ancient Cultural Street
 
Tianjin Ancient Cultural Street is located in the Nankai District of the Tianjin Municipality and was formally opened in 1986. It is located on the west bank of the Haihe River, with Tianhou Palace as its geographical center.

Tianjin Ancient Cultural Street begins at Gongbei Avenue in the north, and ends at Gongnan Avenue in the south, being 0.36 miles long and 16 feet wide. Although essentially a business street, Tianjin Ancient Cultural Street attracts tourists who come to see its special architectural styles, admire its classic cultural features, buy various folk crafts, and sample the delicious local Tianjin snacks.

Above all, as visitors walk along the street, they will be particularly impressed by the splendid replica classical architecture in the folk style of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). 
 
This 22,000 square-meter area of two- story buildings was designed in Ming and Qing dynasty styles. Tourists can pick up antiques and traditional folk products like clay sculptures, New Year paintings, kites and chinaware, all in Tianjin style. It's worth visiting for a taste of local culture, but don't forget to bargain hard.
