How to Travel from Beijing to Tianjin?

Written by Sally Guo Updated Sep. 27, 2021

There is no flight running between Beijing and Tianjin because their distance is only 135km (84 miles). It is very easy to travel from Beijing to Tianjin and the best way is to take a high-speed train, which takes only half an hour.
