Welcome to Tiānshuǐ


Modern Tiānshuǐ is actually two very separate districts 15km apart: there is the railhead sprawl, known as Màijī Qū (麦积区; formerly Běidào), and the central commercial area to the west, known as Qínzhōu Qū (秦州区), where you’ll arrive if coming in by bus. The two sections are lashed together by a long freeway that runs along the river.
