We started our attempt to see the 798 Art Zone just before dusk and ran out of day light to do it justice. The little that we did see was cool, but I am positive there's more to it than what we were able to observe.

This is an old manufacturing district that has been taken over by the avant guard artist. It is very interesting and filled with wonderful art work juxtaposed against the old manufacturing mills. Worth the time to visit. Fewer artist now but plenty of original art.

Since the site is huge and rambling with most of the warehouses unused, you will spend a long time wandering around. All but one of the galleries we went into was free. We came away with a couple of statues from "Soul Collection" which satisfied our balance of quirky art and not over-the-top prices (600 RMB for a 10 inch... More

Very walkable area! Lots to see in an old repurposed industry factory district! Local artists to high end galleries! Interactive street art. Lots of cafes to grab a bit and refreshing cocktail! Only downside, is that it closes relatively early, around dusk.

I went to 798 Art Zone over Christmas ! There was so much to see! Notwithstanding the poor air condition, we could not hold walking from one exhibitions or shops to another. The place was enormous and ensure you put in walkable shoes. The art you can see there is very diverse and you easily spent a day or two... More

Dont expect to go there and find some kind of true underground culture. It's kind of like Camden Town in London : you can find some interesting things and people, but mostly tourists. There are a lot of galleries though, you have to pay a fee for most of them. You really can find interesting things, up to you to... More
