We booked a guided tour by horse and carriage to sight see in the town of Wudadao. Quite some interesting stories and an interesting experience.

Wudadao was recommended by the hotel concierge. It's an area with colonial styled houses. Nothing we haven't seen. Highlight was the horse carriage ride (complete with recorded narratives of some of the houses) which the kids enjoyed. Plenty of restaurants in that area. Reasonable prices. Nightmare began when we wanted to get a cab back to our hotel. After waiting... More

Tianjin is old as far as its history goes, but old Chinese buildings are rare in Tianjin. The Five Great Avenues tell a different aspect of Chinese history and in particular, the history of Tianjin about a century or so ago. There are many buildings built in western architectural styles that had it not been for the Chinese words on... More

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.
