There is a lot of art and fun stuff to see here. We enjoyed strolling around, had a nice afternoon tea and bought some really interesting Chinese Pop Art. I definitely recommend checking it out.

We had a great time exploring this artsy area. Lots of cute and very cool art shops, great coffee shops, a few cute restaurants. It was a fun time and I would recommend it as a different thing to beyond all the wonderful historical sites in Beijing.

This is the 4th time I'm in Beijing, going to the hot tourism spots just like ticking the check list, I did learn a thing or two from the empire buildings, but I think what can represent the "live" Beijing is here, 798. There are many free art exhibitions around, you just need to push the door, get in and... More

It's such a place that doesn't deserve its fame. It is not art at all!! Everyone can go there and open a studio and no restriction. So you can imagine the quality of so called "art".

Today was my first time to visit this area, and I was concerned by the mixed reviews on tripadvisor. This is off the beaten path for American tourists, and I think well worth doing. Cabs are relatively cheap in Beijing, and I was able to get from the Central Beijing to 798 Art Zone for about $14 (U.S.). It was... More

This is a very funky arts neighborhood that feels like San Francisco - definitely worth a visit. There are a lot of spots selling art-works and art trinkets. A fun spot to walk around.

798 is now a place for eating, art museums and high tech office buildings. There may be 100 buildings in this zone. Volkswagen and Audi have their engineering headquarters of China within the 798 area. There is an interesting restaurant with many wall-hangings from the Mao era. This is a great place to stroll and explore in the late spring... More

798 is not what it used to be. There are still some big galleries left, but you will have to do your research before you go in order to find them. Apart from the few places worth visiting, the place is crammed with overpriced cafes and design shops - so if you want to shop some freaky design pieces, this... More
