I'm getting info about Tianjin on Mar 03, 2020:
please someone from Tianjin answer me. The apartment price in Binhai area is higher or in central parts of Tianjin (like Heping, Hexi, Hedong ...) about level of development, apartment price, facilities and in everything? Native people prefer which districts for living? and also you can give me other useful datas. thanks so much.

I think in future Tianjin will become more expensive in comparing with smaller cities like Xiamen. Because Tianjin is turning one of Asian Biggest and most important cities.
Tianjin is a great city to visit and I think China can have a good revenue from tourist by visiting Tianjin.
I'd like to visit China and it's big cities like Tianjin one day.

Are you manager of this website? you have comments in many cities pages.
It's about 10 years that I'm reading about world cities. I'd like to help you on this website by my info.
for start: Tianjin is a large and populated city. it's one of China's 5 most important cities. and also it's a developed city. but it's not in this ranking list:
(( Price Rankings by City of Price per Square Meter to Buy Apartment in City Centre (Buy Apartment Price) ))
I think you need to contact with people who has information about this important city. also Wuhan and Chongqing can be on that list. thanks very much for your great website.
