    Location of Tianjin:

    Tianjin is the third largest city in China. It is close to Beijing. It takes about 2 hours to drive to Beijing from Tianjin on a modern toll way. There are also convenient fast train and bus services. The transportation (including airport pickups) will all be taken care of by the local organizers (and will be arranged in advance). For most cases, you should fly into Beijing, and we will arrange the transportation from the Beijing airport to Tianjin. In any case, don't panic, and you don't need to speak Chinese.
