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.
