“Tianjin is China’s second largest city and is a logical extension for AirAsia X Thailand after Shanghai. Apart from being a travel-worthy place, Tianjin is also a gateway to Beijing and a crossroad of tourism, trade and investment,” Nadda added.
Tianjin is one of four metropolises in China, a major port and a hub of trade and investment for the country’s northern region. Skyscrapers featuring modern designs fill the city and stand alongside European style structures such as the always hip Tianjin Binhai Library and its riverside landmark the Tianjin Eye.
At the same time, Tianjin has maintained its Chinese charms and status as an ancient Chinese waypoint.
