Beijing – 798, The Modern Art Area

Also called «798 Art District», the area is composed of open-sky modern art. This place is recommended to pictures lovers and all those who want to have some hours of fun : You fit in the landscape and can pose inside the art masterpieces for pictures. A train, some weird statues, the place is full of surprises and I’m sure that whatever your position might be on modern art, you will enjoy the time spent in this unusual district.

Subway : Take line 2 and get off at «Dongzhimen» station. Then take the airport line (Brown) and get off at «Sanyuanqiao» station. Then, take bus number 401 and get off at «Dashanzi Lukounan» bus station. Don’t get there too late since it’s quite hard to get there. The easiest way might as well be the taxi, if you know how to bargain. Ask for «tchee djeeo ba (with the «a» of «cat») or ask a chinese friend to write down the address for you in chinese and in piyin.
