Cangzhou is 55 miles (89 kilometers) from Tianjin and 110 miles (177 kilometers) from Beijing.
Visiting just one town or city, no matter how popular, will only ever furnish you with a narrow glimpse into the broader qualities of a region. So allow time to visit Hebei's other sights and attractions. You may also wish to check out Huanghua, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the west, and Dagang 55 miles (89 kilometers) to the southwest.
Grab some transportation and spend half a day in Tianjin, a transport and retail hub for the area, 55 miles (89 kilometers) from Cangzhou. The place offers a wide range of visitor attractions, such as Drum Tower, TEDA Football Stadium and Former Residence of Liang Qichao. Zhou Enlai Memorial Hall, Nankai University and Tianjin University are just a sample of the other interesting visitor attractions that await.
Impress the people you'll encounter in Hebei, by learning parts of Mandarin. Gaining an understanding of a range of useful sentences, such as "Nǐ yào bú yào gēn wǒ tiàowǔ", which is "Would you like todance with me?", can make your trip all the more interesting. Or try "Zhèiwèi xiānsheng huì qīngdān" (This gentleman/lady will pay for everything).
When the time comes to leave this unique place, say farewell the way they do in Mandarin, with a heartfelt "Zàijiàn."
