The apartment is located in 798 art district in Beijing. 20 minutes by taxi to the capital airport. But also convince to get to the city center. If you are interested in art then I think it is a best choice for you. Since I am working with art, I could give you a guide to some arty places in Beijing. I am original from Beijing so I know the city and places with different characters. Maybe a little Hutong tour or a cozy Chinese or Japanese restaurants since I had lived in Japan for a long time.
