Five Great Avenues, Tianjin

#1 of 20 in Scenic Drive in China
Scenic Drive Outdoor Activity
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. Our Tianjin itinerary builder makes visiting Five Great Avenues and other Tianjin attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Where to stay in Tianjin

The large city of Tianjin has more than enough accommodations to cater to the different tastes of its visitors. Just take a look at the central districts of Hedong, Hebei, and Hexi. Towering over the central area, an abundance of high-rise hotels offer rooms and facilities both budget and upmarket, and convenient access to the main transport hubs, shops, and sights. If you're planning on staying in town for a while, consider renting an apartment in one of the more residential districts further out.
