798 Art Zone

What was once an area of state-run factories was transformed in 2002 into 798 Art Zone, a collection of mostly modern art galleries in Dashanzi in Northeast Beijing. Today, this area is populated with dozens of art galleries and international and local artist studios along with restaurants and bars, which are all worth discovering.

On the final day in the capital, explore the numerous contemporary art and photography galleries at 798 Art District. Visit some of Beijing’s revered temples, including the Temple of Heaven, Lama Temple, and Confucius Temple, with dinner at Temple Restaurant, housed in a restored Tibetan Temple Complex. I boarded the high-speed overnight train to Xi’an for the next leg of my journey.
