    Amazing structures. Lots of history and beautiful surroundings. People in traditional costume. Very crowded but well worth the visit.

    Went to Beijing for a business trip. I had only one day free. Decided to see 798 art zone and found it very amusing.

    It looks like foreigners are allowed in again as I just needed to flash my.passport and show them my health code and reservation, which anyone can book online for free. It's a nice, big orderly museum but without English explanations

    As we read the reviews before our trip, it said that no cards accepted, BUT now the cards were accepted. This was a good thing because our trip was coming to an end.
    The atmosphere is cool, liked the paintings and all. Service was good and the most important thing of all was that the lamb chops we ate were the best ever!

    We enjoyed viewing the flowers as they are blooming and the calm clear waters of the lake. Not crowded during our weekend visit. Over 8,000 different tropical and subtropical plants and flowers. Lots of trails for walking and hiking.

    Close to the Lama Temple, this is a much quieter temple complex with no crowds. Though not as impressive as the Lama Temple, it has dozens of steles which are the stone tablets used to inscribe history - of great interest to history buffs, but otherwise rather boring. Like the Lama Temple, a pretty long walk fro the subway station.

    A very good location in central Beijing.
    A beautiful traditional Chinese building, if you have been to Beijing many times and no ideas where to go, it will be a good choice.

    This museum is quite small and you just take some time to appreciate most arts.
    It is clean than what I expect and you can take the lift to the different levels to enjoy the different exhibition.

    Good to go and can learn Chinese & Taiwan art.

    This is a review of the clock gallery only. As other reviewers have noted, this requires a separate ticket from the nearby treasure gallery.

    This is worthwhile, but (on a weekend) it was extremely crowded. It is not large, but according to the website 82 clocks are on display. They are extremely ornate, and the workmanship involved is quite stunning.

    If you can be there on a weekday, perhaps it would be less crowded and more enjoyable.

    This contemporary art gallery is worth the trip. It is beautiful and peaceful but for some of the spots you need patience to be able to get to take a photo as there are lots of people here in the weekends. Beautiful cafe inside that is also worthy of visiting.

    Very cool place. It is about 50 metres from the Jianguomen station, Exit C.
    There is an outside garden with a few observatory pieces. Also, a courtyard with some other pieces and some museum displays.
    In the tower, which is actually part of the old City Wall, are many other old observatory pieces. There is also a very good view of this part of city.
    20RMB admission.
    Depending on your interests, it’s a smaller place, so you’ll need 45-60 minutes.

    Trust me, this is not exactly on my top 10 things to see in Beijing. We only ended up at this museum because we had a free day in Beijing and we happened to be staying about a 15 minute walk from the museum. Surprisingly, this ended up to be quite an interesting time spent here. The museum is very modern and it is huge inside. I think it covered about five stories of Chinese and Russian era cars and some foreign cars. Very attractive displays. It has transportation vehicle displays that dates back thousands years ago. A very eclectic collection of vehicles from early turn of the century to modern times. Impressive collection of black Chinese sedans used by officials and dignitaries. Time well spent at this impromptu visit to the car musuem.

    I learned a lot about the contributions made by the railroads and rail equipment to the rapid growth and importance of China on the world stage. The Chinese government invested heavily in the rail system and has the World’s best high speed rail system. Much of the narrative in the museum is also presented in English. You can also experience some things first hand in the simulators.

    I found out about this site by pure coincidence. I haven’t seen any advertisment, it wasn’t mention in my guide.
    But if I missed it, I would be sorry. I visited it on Saturday morning and there was so much to see... and hear! The place is organised like a village of different houses from different regions of China. There are exhibitions in some of the houses. But the best thing are live performances of singers and dancers - again from different regions.
    You can easily spend several hours there wandering around, watching and listening... or simply having rest from busy Beijing by keeping yourself under the trees.
