After all the iconic touring of bucket list sites a visit to the Art Zone, especially on the weekend provides another and more contemporary Chinese urban experience. Go for the contemporary art and also for the small cafes and restaurants that are in the Zone. But also go to interact with the younger and more with it Chinese who ever... More

This is one of the best place where you can find art with dedicated styles 3D and much more. It's worth your be here at least once. You may have to be careful for the timings as the museum closes at 5 pm.

Spent two hours walking though and gathering up objects to remember my short visit to Beijing with. Great pieces of art along the way and an interesting group of folks around the art.

This is full of artistic atmosphere, everywhere on the street culture for the art district to add interest, there are many avant-garde design interesting area is very suitable for taking pictures(some shop may not allow to taking photo). Only Christmas is more, but not to the crowding. Most of the exhibition hall is free of charge, a small number of... More

798 has a large range of different types of art pieces. Ranging from contemporary to traditional to things that I would find weird! (but in a good way). I would definitely recommend 798 for anyone who enjoys taking pictures with different backgrounds and experiencing different arts. The entire place takes around 2-4 hours depending on how you pace yourself.

798 Art Zone is the most impressive place of my Beijing trip, it is so funny to take the photos, when i just stand on or behind the painting, i feel i am actually personally on the scene, but it is so unfortunately that i just have half hour to visited, if people who like to take a photo with...

This must have been my third time at China's most hyped up art district. This time however I left it rather disappointed. Huge crowds toil what seems to have turned into a major kitsch and souvenir fair. Finding traces of China's creative art scene is getting so much harder it seems. It is difficult to tell whether this is due... More

One of my favourite places to visit in Beijing. A former industrial area which has become an art district with galleries, cafe, bars and restaurants. Makes sure you go during the day when you will be able to see the art installations amongst the former industrial equipment. Getting there is easy enough. Catch the subway to Jiangtai, it's about a... More

It is a surprise, when you arrive there you are not able to imagine how it is possible that there are art statues and art sculptures in the middle of the streets; a place to visit, mostly recommended.

This is a space clearly cultivated for modern art. While it does exude the usual commercialised hipsterism, it is surprisingly refreshing and unexpected. The scene is diverse, expressive, and it is a whole different world to explore. it is altogether inspiring, thought provoking, and relaxing to spend a good day here.
