798 Art Space


Last week I visited the 798 Art Space in Beijing. I’m proud of myself for getting to this place beyond the subway system using public transportation rather than a taxi. Just take the subway to Dongzhimen and then take bus 418 or 688 (1 yuan) to 798. If you show the fare taker “798,” she’ll make sure you don’t miss the stop.


I visited 798 a couple years ago and I remember it as being less commercial. There were cafés, shops and restaurants, but there seemed to be more art. Also, now there were a few galleries that charged entrance fees. I haven’t seen that anywhere, let alone in a country with so many great free museums, so I passed them by. Still this extensive area with dozens of galleries is a great place to wander.
