798 Art District: New Landmark of Beijing Urban Culture

Beijing’s 798 Art Zone (798 艺术区 , say qī jiǔ bā yìshù qū), also known as the Dashanzi Art District, is a collection of former military factories transformed into trendy creative spaces. It’s a fantastic place to explore, and it was one of our favourite spots in Beijing, away from the traditional tourist attractions.

The 798 Art District is a unique cultural destination that should be on every traveller’s Beijing list. This former factory complex turned art district is now home to some of the most innovative and creative art spaces in the world.
