Hello and welcome to ‘Leisure Activities in Tianjin!’



This is a small guide to some of the places where you can partake in fun activities which have been requested many times in the wechat groups!

This list is neither exhaustive nor particularly detailed, I have simply collated the information as I have found it.


If you have any activities or places to add for the benefit of the foreign community, please message in the Activities group or Tianjinexpats English group (these are wechat groups) and I will make sure the article is amended on a regular basis, enjoy! You can also add a comment at the bottom of this article!


NOTE: none of these venues likely have English-speaking staff so make sure you have someone with you who can translate, if you cant do it yourself!
