I like the traditional elements at Tsinghua University. The Pagodas, the pavilions, the lotus flower pond, bridges and hills were just part of a traditional and beautiful Chinese garden. No wonder the campus was part of the Palace in the past. Visiting Tsinghua University is...More

This is a popular tourist sight for Chinese tourists. There's security on the front gate, so you'll see groups of Chinese tourists congregated across the road taking photos of the entrance. It has a nice campus, but so too do many other universities around the...More

A tour of the campus is interesting, even if only to compare to your own experience. However, asking various students what they are studying and why (if possible) is vastly more illuminating.

Feeling impressed by how large the campus is, Tsinghua University is a lovely campus with lots of multifunctional buildings in it. By the entrance, you can see plenty of the representatives of Tsinghua’s technology businesses. Once an elementary school student studying in Tsinghua’s primary school,...More

In my opinion, it is the top university of China. Very excellent students and faculty work there. Also, nice for tourists to walk around but do not be surprised to see many tour buses of people to come and visit.

It's a university. A very big university. There's the old gate that's really pretty, but personally I don't think it's all that interesting to visit. Beida has a much nicer campus.
