Tianjin not only has an abundance of natural resources, such as mountains, rivers, lakes, seas, springs, and wet­lands, but also boasts plentiful intangible cultural heritage, including more than 30 national-level heritage items.

As one of the world's three major Matzu temples, its Tianhou Temple has become a center for the spread and promotion of Matzu culture in northern China.

The popular art of cross-talk in Tianjin mirrors the optimistic, frank and humorous personal­ity of its people. Guo Degang, founder of the Deyun Club, a renowned cross-talk club, was born in Tianjin.
