Area guide: 798

Beijing's famous art district has world-class galleries as well as restaurants, bars and shopping

The abandoned military factories that house 798, Beijing's most famous art district, pretty much invented industrial chic in the capital. The sprawling complex of re-purposed warehouses is packed full of galleries, and, nowadays, plenty of shops and restaurants too. 

Although the area is often derided for becoming a tourist trap, it's still the place to see some of the biggest names in Chinese and international contemporary art, so head over for a day of guaranteed cultural stimulation.
