The third leg of the "A Date with China" international media tour kicked off in Tianjin on Friday.
A dazzling drone show to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China was held on Wednesday evening in Yangliuqing Ancient Town in Tianjin's Xiqing district.
Tianjin will invest a hefty 5.2 billion yuan ($797.2 million) to create a replica of the thriving Yangliuqing section of the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal as it was 1,000 years ago, the city announced late last week.
Tianjin will pursue a new development pattern, apply a new vision of development, deepen reform, management and service, and create a market-oriented legalized international business environment, according to the 10th plenary session of the 11th CPC Tianjin Municipal Committee held on Dec 30-31.
Once famed for its unique style of woodblock printing, the ancient town of Yangliuqing is now drawing crowds with its well-preserved traditional architecture, Yang Cheng reports in Tianjin.
