798 Art Zone Beijing Part 5, Beijing

Beijing [北京] • 12 DECEMBER 2014
Tour starts from 798 Art Zone, a perfect hangout for art fans. Take any bus that stops at Dashanzi station and there you will find the 798 Art Zone. The original 798 was a state-owned industrial plant established in the 1950s. 

The plant was abandoned in late 1990s. Inspired by the SOHO area in New York City, some artists moved to the warehouse lofts in 798 in 2000.

Today art studios, galleries as well as book stores, cafes and restaurants are abundant in the area and this is from a gallery manager. 

Occupying an area of more than 600,000 square meters,the 798 Art Zone might take up an entire day. So don't be too ambitious if you want to cover more sites.
