798 Art District is an art complex in the Chaoyang District of Beijing. This is probably one of the coolest places I’ve been to in China. It used to be a military factory complex which they’ve converted to art galleries, cafes and the like.
It’s just a little bit tricky to go to. On our way there, we took the subway and the bus. When we were leaving, we tried to get a Taxi but none would take us since they didn’t really understand where we were going or some just didn’t want to go. So we were forced to take the bus again which was tight and full at people around 6pm which is the time people go back home from work.
HOW TO GET THERE:
Subway: Take Subway Line 10 and alight at Sanyuanqiao Station. Leave from Exit C and find the Sanyuanqiao Bus Stop. Get on Bus 401 and off at Dashanzi Lukou Nan (Dashanzi Road Crossing South) Station.
Bus: Take Bus No. 401, 402, 405, 445, 909, 946, 955, 973, 988, or 991 to Dashanzi Road Crossing South or Wangyefen Stop.
This store only sold skull products which were really cool but it’s more upscale. I saw this skull bag that was just amazing. I wish I took a picture. The quality of the bag was also exceptional. Unfortunately, I cannot bring myself to purchase such an expensive item.
