798 Art Zone, Beijing

4.2
#3 of 86 in Neighborhoods in China
Neighborhood Art Gallery
Located in a decommissioned military factory, 798 Art Zone represents a Bauhaus-style hub for the city's thriving artistic community. Although initially frowned upon by the Communist government, the avant-garde movement flourished within this cheap and ample workshop space, which gradually started to attract visitors and bohemians to observe the modern artistic accomplishments. Inside, you can visit many repurposed facilities, including the photo gallery, an Italian and a French café, and a Sichuan restaurant, as well as space for press conferences, fashion shows, and exhibitions. You can always ask for guide service during your visit. Work out when and for how long to visit 798 Art Zone and other Beijing attractions using our handy Beijing vacation route planner.

Where to stay in Beijing

Beijing offers accommodations to suit the needs of every traveler, with clean, affordable hostels open to foreign backpackers, practical mid-range hotels for the business trip and group tour, and luxury four- and five-star hotels available at reasonable prices. Look for location first: map your overnight accommodations to the attractions you want to see, because staying far from the central business district and city center can mean a lot of time in transit.
