Amazing place- a MUST GO in Beijing. Just stroll around and go inside the galleries-this is a big part of the experience- some of the galleries charge money but trust me- its worth it.

This is an interesting place to visit if you want to see a different side of Chinese lifestyle. There are various art displays which change frequently. Lots of opportunities for photography.
