Travelers looking to see the modern culture of Beijing should spend an afternoon browsing through the 798 art district's warehouses and alleyways.

This artistic community is located in the Dashanzi district and gets its name from the Soviet-style factories that used to operate there. Artists and gallery owners work in redesigned factory buildings which provide an industrial backdrop that enhances the atmosphere of the area.

"Whether you want to buy art or just look and enjoy a coffee along the way, the 798 art district is really a window into modern China and how it is embracing yet another aspect of western culture with its own Chinese twist."

798 has only evolved in the past few years and is now home to numerous galleries and artists, both Chinese and international, as well as fashion shops, gourmet restaurants, and small cafes. It has become the creative center for Beijing's contemporary art scene, even attracting large international brands doing product launches or fashion shows.
