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.

I have ambivalent feelings towards this new Five Great Avenues. The three photos that I include in the review tell the face-lift of the old stadium. Though still under construction, the newly renovated stadium seemed to have lost most features and functions of a typical stadium. No standard football field, and no bleachers, either. Visitors may walk in from any... More

It is a good place, clean and quiet, many clubs, restaurants and shop there, the architectures are quite good. However you really need a tour guide or a person who know the history there well to tell you the stories about each house....

It's just a road filled with bunch of non-oriental houses. If you don't know what to do, you might wanna go there for a walk, but that's it.. Just walk, see, and you're done.

Tianjin is known for the European style buildings, and we were surprised to find out how nice and quite this area was. For those who don't know the history behind it, these are simply western style houses, however, with the rich history behind each building, we enjoyed our walk and most of all, we went back in time, to the...

The constructures along Fice Great Avenues are very nice, old but beautiful. There're many restaurants with good taste and pretty decoration, you could borrow a bicycle built for two or four and tour around Five Great Avenues, you could also take a hansom cab there.

I came here because it got a high rating in tripadvisor, but what i saw is different from what i expected.. maybe because i didn't like (or know) architecture much but it just like a bunch of european houses where i can't find anything special. You can only just take a photo from outside the gate. My opinion is make... More
