A nice place for a walk and take pictures. A lot of the buildings there have been restored so if you are a historical buff you might be disappointed. The buildings now are used for residential and commercial. Still a nice place to visit.

Was at Fifth Avenue with my boyfriend several times. It looks different in the day and night. I was surprised to see that people were running and walking around the track. Many restaurants around the area. Smoki and co is very worth the visit. Great food at affordable price.

Going to Wu Da Daon(5 Avenues) is fun. The restaurants there are good; Smoki's, Pizza Bianca, etc. The amphitheater is covered in astro-turf, but it is clean and new. Originally designed by famous Tianjin resident Eric Lidell (Chariots of Fire runner), it has been just restored/rebuilt.

We took a relaxing, peaceful walk from Ritz Carlton to the Five Great Avenues, ending in the Minyuan Stadium. With the help of Baidu map, one would not lose directions. An easy stroll allowing one to appreciate the historic buildings along the way. Some buildings are people's homes, and others are now bars and restaurants. I appreciate the city government's...

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.
