If u know Tian Zi Fang in Shanghai you will be disappointed from the 798 Art Zone. We were there during the day, maybe in the night it is better when all restaurants and galleries are open. Definitely not a must to see in Beijing

Nothing quite prepared us for the couple or three hours we spent at this recycled industrial plant, still dominated by remnants of factory buildings. A rather magnificent steam locomotive is parked alongside a little square housing cafès and galleries. In some respects the whole area...More

The entire area is very nice and cool. However there were some areas that were still under renovation so we did not explore the entire area. The cafes/restaurants in that area were quite pricey and the food quality is nothing to shout about. We saw...More

I believe that many of the galleries are open at night, and there are a number of terrific bars and restaurants that will be open at night. I do not think the museum is, however, open at night.

I was there earlier in the day, not past 6. But it is a big place, with lots of restaurants and other businesses that will be open late. Many of the galleries may be closed by 6, but there will be a lot to see.

You can walk around without actually going into the stores . 99% of the things to see are on the street anyway.
