Beautiful houses with a lot of history behind them. It is very nice to walk around the area to enjoy the beautiful weather. Unfortunately, some of the houses that were classified as "Special Protection" were occupied by enterprise or municipal agencies and the compound of the building were modified to suit the business needs. Some buildings are very rundown inside.... More

So, there is this area called WuDaDau- wait till you see it!! The buildings, built in European-style architecture, from the 1800's till 1900's. Homes, mansions, college buildings. There is such beautiful , ornate, architecture: it is impossible to build them today. The styles range from French to Eastern European. There is a stadium, that looks like an entrance into the...

The five great avenues or Wu Da Dao are the location of many historic homes from Tianjin's past. Most are European style with grand architecture and well maintained. We rented public bicycles near Xiao Bai Lou subway station and started our tour there. I recommend following Ma Chang Dao westward and then proceeding north to Chongqing Dao, the looping back...

I guess Tianjin is more interesting to Chinese tourists then to westerners. It is a large city with a bit of Disney land traits. Lots is rebuild and fake. For the me a stroll by the river (on the north eastern side, not the west) and a stroll in the five great avenues in a sunny day is far more... More

Personally I think that this attraction isn't very interesting, it has nothing of cultural or historic, the architecture wants to recall the European Art Nouveau style, some nice building but nothing more to see than low-end restaurants.

Really interesting buildings and history in this area. The best coffee in Tianjin in on Guiling Road - its called Simple Cafe. Amazing double espresso. We also ate Tianjin Pork Buns at a restaurant just near Simple Cafe called Goubuli, which were delicious. Sorry - gobbled the Pork Buns and forgot to photograph them!

Tianjin is just an overall place when the weather is good. They converted this stadium into a beautiful brick circular event - it's like such grandeur for such a simple running track. Then there are such broad boulevards and beautiful buildings. Very nice

We did not find it really worth the visit. It was too cold to walk around. The restaurants there are unique though

This is just one more example of a Chinese city creating a faux tourist attraction then hyping it up to rake in dollars. There's really nothing to see here other than 19th century European facades plastered on a series of expensive restaurants. These sorts of places always make me depressed, because the real China that ceased to exist a decade... More
