We visited ancient culture street and really enjoyed the atmosphere and the available souvenirs that were there. We also got a great bing for a snack. Nice for a wander with a very Chinese flavor. Highly recommended for visitors to Tianjin.

You have to like kitsch and crowds (which we do) to visit this fun area. Some history mixed in but it is the mixture of food and people that makes it a hit.

This area was very touristy, but it was still fun having a look round all the different shops selling all kinds of souvenirs. There was even an antiques market, which was nice to look around

That impressed me. Looks kinda old and modern at the same time, but with a touch or touristy. Just good foods probably

I have mixed feelings. The bad: This area claims to be historic but most of the charm is gone (just like other shopping streets throughout China). The buildings are old looking when you see the roofs BUT modern and boring shops on the first floor....More

It was hot as anything that day but outside of the weather, we loved the ancient culture street. Many of the shops were more like museums with history and artifacts than touristy items. It was beautiful.

Traditional atmosphere, souvenir shops, good place to find little something to bring home. You can find pretty much every little thing that anyone associates with China. Bought a lovely paper sun umbrella (also used it since it was smoking hot).

Enjoyed the street on a quite afternoon! So beautiful and authentic! Take your time and walk around, not a huge place, so you can use two hours and have a lunch. I have been told not to shop there since it is too expensive,haven’t checked...More

I was there on a Wednesday so I can't answer definitively. However, being China, they will be on the look-out to make as much money as possible. Closing on a Sunday is primarily a western (Christian) concept. Having... More

Oh I’m not sure how much it is to get a taxi from the cruise port. But it is farley easy to flag a taxi around the place
