Sureal experience in Beijing.

Great to see an exciting art community in Beijing. Stands in steak contrast to everything else in the city. Great restaurants. Hip shops. Prices are to high but good quality.

A trendy place with some great art and galleries. This is the place the local chic young people go to be seen. Wander the streets, look at the art, go to the museums and galleries. Worth it if you like art.

Prior military digital factory district. Interesting modern art galleries. Very cute area with lots of shops/restaurants. Fun for an hour especially if you get tired of pure history.

Very interesting place to visit, an old industrial compound refurbished as an art and event location. Not one of the typical tourist destinations. Lot's of Galleries from traditional art to modern and contemporary art. The whole place is full of small shops and caffees - even on a rainy day a place to visit.

The 798 art district used to be home to lots of up and coming artists but it's been westernised/touristised and there are more restaurants than studios now. There are still some interesting galleries but I wad a bit disappointed.

We caught the bus out to the 798 art district which took about 20mins & cost 10 RMB for five of us. Spent the morning wondering around looking at art and browsing in the little shops. You need a few hours there as the area is pretty big. There are lots of little cafes and spots to eat & drink.... More

I can spend hours just walking around. The place has a lot of cool places and alleys to explore. You don't actually have to see an art exhibit to have been there cuz the whole place is like an art exhibition. Usually I explore pictures online before I go to see what is new and cool in the area and... More

Comes as no surprise that versus my last visit over 6 years ago the place has turned into a hub of tourists. There are still galleries but you have to filter through all of the gift shops selling the same things you'd find at any other "artsy" little shops in the world. Good for a stroll if you have nothing... More

Great art zone, full of cool cafes and arty vibe. Near a train line and big enough to spend an afternoon.

We enjoyed spending an afternoon wandering around here. It goes on for several blocks and it was fun to stumble onto a cool gallery or artist working space, as well as unique clothing boutiques. There are high and lower-end places, but it's not junky at all. Although we didn't dine here, there were tons of great looking cafes. The only... More
