Tianjin is a metropolis in northern China and one of five national central cities of the People's Republic of China (PRC). It is governed as one of China’s four direct-controlled municipalities , and is thus under direct administration of the central government. Tianjin borders Hebei Province and Beijing Municipality, bounded to the east by the Bohai Gulf portion of the Yellow Sea. Part of the Bohai Economic Rim, it is the largest coastal city in northern China.
In terms of urban population, Tianjin is the fourth largest in China, after Shanghai, Beijing, and Guangzhou, and ranks fifth by administrative area population. Tianjin is a dual-core city, with its main urban area (including the old city) located along the Hai He River, which connects to the Yellow and Yangtze Rivers via the Grand Canal; and Binhai, a New Area urban core located east of the old city, on the Bohai coast. As of the end of 2010, around 285 Fortune 500 companies had established premises in Binhai, which is a new growth pole in China and a hub of advanced industry and financial activity. Since the mid-19th century, Tianjin has been a major seaport and gateway to the nation's capital.
