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

If you live in one of China's fourth tier cities and have not seen a beautiful thing in months and really long to see architecture not inspired by Mao's little red book then sure... Go for it. Go walk around, go drive through it. Keep expectations low and it should be a good way to spend a couple of hours.

The architecture is very interesting, small Europe in the heart of Tianjin. You can take a carriage or enjoy walking along the streets.

This area showcased the remaining European houses in Tianjin. It wasn't really fancy, especially if you've been to Europe or stay in a place whereby there are European architecture too. Somewhat disappointing.

Just wander about - you'll come across lots of old buildings and it's quite leafy and pleasant. It's good that the authorities haven't tried to do too much with this area in terms of tourism, much better than making it a fake tourist street or something like that.
