I lived in this are for almost 4 years. It is a nice peaceful part of the city. It's good for a bike ride or a walk but if your looking for a lot of information you will probably be disappointed. The majority of buildings have been renovated and they really needed it. The ones that hadn't were just falling... More

These streets are getting worse, they were much more authentic 20 years ago. The government was trying to "revive" them to attract more tourists in the last decade. However they lost their original flavor. I think they are now, maybe a bit exaggerated, branded as something artificial like wikipedia.org/wiki/Thames_Town

Since the area is quite big, try to get bicycle and ride around this area, you'll enjoy the view of old buildings. The rental is around 10-20yuan per hour. We managed to ride for around half an hour only when it was raining and had to take shelter. Wish the weather could be better on that day.

I was kind of disappointed in the Five Great Avenues, since there really wasn't that much to it. It was in a very nice section of town and there were some nice European style homes. With it being rather cold and windy when we were there, we didn't spend a lot of time there. It would probably be a nice... More

These five avenues are definitely to pass by when in Tianjin. My advice is to go there by day in order to better see the different styles of buildings, then to go by night to the stadium where the lights have an astonishing effect. The avenues give a great colonial aspect to Tianjin, really nice look! Recommended!

A really great place for an afternoon walk. There are several small cafes, restaurants, and bars in these streets as well. Definitely worth checking out.

Have been to the place several times. This place was regarded as nice vacation resort for high rank officers of Qing dynasty and business man, when there was quite some foreign trading business happening in the city. It was a decent life style for most upper class in Beijing to own a villa in this area. It is quite common... More

We had 2hrs to kill in Tianjin & ended up in the old Edinburgh Street. The map at each end of the street labels where 'famous' people lived, and so we went to check out Eric Liddell's gaff, sadly it has no plaque and no information outside it, so there was nothing to see & this was the same for...

Decided to do the Horse and Carriage tour for 30 minutes. Of course only in Chinese and from feedback of Chinese speakers, they did not really share a lot of information. Not much to see!

This place is filled with colonial styled houses and you will feel being in Europe instead of China. Some of them were run down and some renovated. Take a ride of the carriage for a ride in the area and hear some history of this part of Tianjin. Quite a number of famous Chinese stayed here before.
