Five Great Avenues, Tianjin

3.9
Take a walk through Five Great Avenues, a historically international district showcasing a wealth of different architectural styles from across Europe. The protected and well-preserved buildings date back to the late Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), when the city became a British colony. At that time, the influx of Westerners littering the area brought interesting takes on Gothic, Baroque, and Renaissance architecture. A popular place for expats to this day, the upmarket district also houses a number of Western food stores and restaurants along with 230 buildings of historical interest.

    Home in Tianjin, my favorite thing is when the weather is good, five Avenue, for a walk. No matter how bustling city, it remained quiet. Walk in five Avenue, I stand looking at the century-old building, and then dug a hole to dig the stories of the people who used to live here, and is a really fun thing. So when friends travel to Tianjin, will recommend that they come here to see. There are a lot of cafes, restaurants and shopping are not tired in the afternoon.

    Here belong to the original promotion of Tianjin British concession territories, most of the buildings were built in the 1920-30 homes, many of them celebrities (many of these celebrities I don't know), there was a stadium, now square, walk in here feeling pretty good, and there are many restaurants. Eating NARI Kei and Maxim, are also good.
