Hebei District
In the Hebei district you will find a number of tourist amenities, with popular hotels, such as the Holiday Inn Tianjin and the Tianhe Hotel, plus a cinema and also a theatre. The atmosphere here is less frenetic than the activity within the downtown area. Visitors can leisurely stroll to Ancient Culture Street and other attractions, which include the Notre Dame des Victories.

Heping District
This district is considered historically old and covers a total area of nearly 10 square kilometres / 4 square miles. There are several cinemas, theatres and a concert hall located in the Heping area of Tianjin, amongst other attractions. Popular accommodation choices in this district include the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Yucheng International Hotel and the East Asia Hotel. Often referred to locally as the Peace district, the Heping neighbourhood has been a hive of activity since its days as the concession area.

Nankai District
Bordering the Chentangzhuang railway in the west and south, and the Hai He in the east, the Nankai is among the biggest of the city's districts, housing a population of almost 900,000.

The Hexi district is home to the Zhujiang and Xiawafang cinemas, as well as many notable accommodation options, such as the Sheraton Hotel, Geneva Hotel, Tianjin Grand Hotel and the Caesar Palace Hotel. German influences can be seen in the colonial-style architecture around Hexi, and some of the buildings dating from the concession years have been transformed into truly top-notch restaurants.

Hongqiao District
