Rather than demolishing a mid 20th century industrial site complete with railway stations the powers that be have decided to turn it into a centre for the arts and creative design. The buildings that haven't been demolished or are too decayed are occupied have been put to various uses. Some are occupied by seried rows of 'workers' starting at computer... More

Has found it just recently, but this area is worth to visit. there is not many places in GZ where you can spend your day, but this one it is for sure. shops offer nice things, even very nice furniture!, you can eat here, etc. a little complicated to find it.

This is first time I been this place. Not much place to visit than my expectation. Just old factory background for people to take pictures. Not many designers showroom. We eat lunch there which is not bad

I was expecting a bit more interactive like 798-Beijing with more shops and cafe's. But my understanding of the place is as a low rent artist workspace. So I suppose the more popular, and more retail, the more expensive the rent may become which is counterproductive to establishing spaces for artists. Still all in all it was worth the trip.... More

I have been to 798 at Beijing so was expecting similar areas/looks - I really love the 798 one in Beijing. First of all, its not difficult to find/reach the place, after we reached the metro station, there's a direct transport where we can pay to bring us there. However we choose to walk, its less than 10 mins of... More

Presented on the Internet as an art precinct with interesting displays, located in a reclaimed Soviet designed, derelict food factory had us fascinated to take the trip to this location. If it once was interesting, it's now way past its prime. There's certainly design businesses within the buildings, plenty of food places, but it's decrepit, dirty, old and only two... More

Being art enthusiasts we were looking forward to this little place. Sadly, the entire place was shut and none of the art galleries were open. Although, a lot of people were strolling around within the premises aimlessly. We felt it as a complete waste of time. Maybe they have set dates when they are open to showcasing art regardless we...

This Redtory district of Guangzhou used to be brick & wood warehouses & canned food factories which have been converted now to house design & architectural firms plus art studios. It is a very trendy and artsy district with lots of restaurants, book store/ coffee shops and outdoor tables. There are also restaurants and bars which open in the evening... More

I heard about this place from a few friends. And they also told me about a shop there where you can make your own piece of pottery! So I went there specially for the pottery thing: 80 yuan per person. I really enjoy the place. There's an atmosphere in there that makes you feel somewhere special. When you get there... More
