China - Tianjin & Hebei (Chapter)
This is the Tianjin & Hebei chapter from Lonely Planet’s China guidebook.
Hebei is a slow-moving panorama of grazing sheep, brown earth and fields of corn and wheat. Cosmopolitan Tianjin may put on a dazzling show, but the true charms of this region are its time-worn, earthy textures and its deep-rooted historical narrative.
