  • It is a bit round down small collection of studios, galleries, cafes - not welcoming especially if you do not speak Chinese. The main feature is a long graffiti wall - duh? Difficult to get on public ...  more »

  • Great place which has lots of studios for free entry. Various artful works that can spend at least couple hours. Most not allowed photo.
  • It's always nice to come here and check what's new. Art galleries and free entry, few nice cafes and design shops. A quiet place. You can find sometimes street artists at work as well.
  • Nice little village of art studios and galleries in industrial buildings. I believe that a real art connaisseur could spend lots of time there, however, I would not recommend this place to any "simple tourists", unless you are looking for some unique, handmade souvenir. The shops are actually nice, but there were also so many places going under construction that there was not much left of the atmosphere because of all the trucks and construction worker going around. Oh, and go there when the weather is good! The little cafés look promising!
  • Good place... Beautiful arrangements... And spacious...
  • Nice place to visit. Many shops there
