798 art district, china:

The 798 art district is a complex of disused factories that have been converted into art galleries, in the Chaoyang area of Beijing. There are also cafes, boutiques and a whole lot of street art and installations to explore. We spent nearly a whole day here, gallery hopping and just taking in the atmosphere.
It's a really interesting area, and we fell in love with many of the old factory buildings, wishing we could convert something similar to live in! There are dozens upon dozens of galleries and we were a little overwhelmed at first, having absolutely no idea where to start. In the end we followed our noses and asked the locals of where they recommended.
If you love galleries or being in creative areas/spaces, be sure to visit 798 art district.
