History

The current Xiqing area came into existence in the mid and late Tang Dynasty. In Northern Song (Song Dynasty) period, this area was the border of Song and Liao (Liao Dynasty).

In 1912, after the founding of Republic of China, this area was named Tianjin County, Zhili Province.

After 1949, it became a special area of Hebei province and Yangliuqing became its center of governance. In 1952, this area became part of Tianjin Municipality. In 1953, it got its name Xijiaoqu (West Suburb). In 1992, it was named Xiqing District.
