What an unique location

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.

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

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

A collection of streets based on the old colonial settlements of Tianjin... Small cottages/houses line streets along with parks, small restaurants, bars and cafes... The best part of this area is the escape it provides from the noise and busy-ness of Tianjin.

Excellent place with the "stadium" in the middle. Lots of nice restaurants not only around the stadium but also in the five streets like the 31 cups, one of the few coffee places with a terrace, Japanese restaurant in the same street or.... Just go for a walk and start exploring it is also worth, we were told, to go... More

Now that I read other reviews of people who booked a tour, maybe that's something we should have done, although that's not how I like to discover a city/neighbourhood. The information office had no English information available. Outside there is a big map saying where which house is but it would have been nice to have at least a small... More
