A breath of Europe

Amid of a Chinese big city you will find many buildings in old European style along the five avenues, harmonic arranged, many of them well restored and beautiful.

The 5 avenues are probably more interesting to a Chinese audience who recognise the 'celebrity' house owners. we didn't but still enjoyed a nice walk, a very pretty park and the stadium re-design. The idea of turning it into a mall is pretty depressing but the art works showing around the running track compensated

Newly developed area that is currently hip and chic, but it's not that special. Lots of other areas with much more to do. not impressed.

Always a nice area to visit if you like to stroll and look at buildings. The old football stadium has been transformed and I use that word lightly. Night and day difference. It now looks like an ampitheatre and well worth a visit. Have a stroll round or under it!! I won't spoil it by telling you. If you are... More

The history and the way this area has been developed is suberb. Who could believie that an old football stadium could be developed into such a wonderful tourist and local area.

When I first started visiting Tianjin ten years ago, they were in the process of tearing down the old and building the new. The council has obviously and wisely realised the visitor potential of the old concession buildings and is in the process of restoring and renovating the buildings. The five avenues is exactly that. Five avenues of which two... More

I stayed at the 5 Great Avenue Area during my time in Tianjin. There are many nice eateries around the area. You can also find Starbucks, Costa Coffee and KFC among the international brands there. It is a good place to chill out for meals or relaxation. But sadly, the colonial buildings are clustered together with high rise buildings and... More

We came here for a morning visit. We had breakfast at Quinwonfu. Small place for history lover and a cute hotel. We had Brunch in the courtyard. There is a large plaza at the middle of the Avenues. This place is former home to a lot of famous people. A early morning walk, or a run is a ideal thing... More

The Fice Avenues was Tianjin's "Beverly Hills" in the colonial era. Today it is a nice place for a stroll among tree-lined streets with many colonial-style mansions around. Interesting for those who like architecture and are interested in Tianjin's checkered past. Some nice bars and restaurants can also be found here.

Instead of spending 80RMB/person for a 30 min horse carriage ride, we spent 100RMB for a 60 min private tour by car for 2. The driver was also the guide but only spoke Chinese. He drove around the entire area and pointed out houses previously owned by the wealthy and famous in the 1920s. The houses are fairly ordinary and... More
