After 15 days of online voting, the official English name for the commercial area on Tianhe road finally settled on the top-ranking address "Tinho Town".

Initiated by the Tianhe road commercial strip administrative committee and district government on February 27, the online voting wrapped up on April 8, gathering a total of 12757 votes. Tinho Town, in which Tinho resembles the Cantonese pronunciation of Tianhe (天河), grabbed 7876 votes, taking up 61.7% of the total.

The English designation is alleged to help raise the intimacy that international customers will have for the commercial area which consists of major high-end shopping malls on the road. In addition, it helps in brand publicity and promotion of the area as well as the communication with other world-famous commercial areas such as Paris'Avenue Des Champs-Elyses and Singapore's Orchard Road.
