Beijing's Art Walks

Discover the city's best galleries and art spaces with our walking tours

Follow Time Out Beijing's carefully planned strolls through city's best art areas. Discover some lesser-known galleries in Beijing's biggest art spot and tourist trap –  798 Art district. Or, if you want to get off the beaten path, take a step away from the crowds and head northeast to the dusty village, Caochangdi – long recognised as the 'alternative' to 798's commercial hyper-drive, where you'll find expertly designed galleries on the leading edge of China's contemporary art scene. Still not quiet enough? Then you need to head to the hutongs – these narrow alleyways have proved the ideal canvas for an explosion of alternative spaces.
