Description

Make sure to find time to explpore one of China's largest coastal cities, Tianjin: "port for the emperor." Considered the birth place of art in northern China, Tianjin is striving to become a modern international portmetropolis while holding on to its unique past.

The Ancient Culture St. is a hotbed for classic Chinese architecure, crafts and snacks that will capture all of your senses. Located on the west bank of the Haihe River you will have the opportunity to admire everything from Qing Dynasty folk style architecture to tasting local favorites like Goubuli Steamed Dumplings. At the center between the two entrances you will find the Tianhou Palace which is one of the only three Mazu Temples in the world. Take a climb up to the top floor to get the best view of this charismatic street.

Visits to the Tianjin Tower and Beining Park will provide the chance to see beauty of Tianjin from above and within its gardens. The Tower located in the heart of the business district will give you a chance to experience present day Tianjin while being able to contemplate the variety of districts from its easily accesible observation deck. Beining Park will show off the local escape from the bustle of China's 6th largest city. With ponds and gazibos linked by up to 29 arched bridges you are bound to find a nook where you could imagine yourself spending a day.

The guide will save the most unique stop for last with the China House Museum. In September of 2002 Porcelain collector Zhang Lianzhi purchased this former bank and refurnished it with hundreds and thousands of historic porcelain pieces. This is something you have to see to believe!

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
