Village in Guangzhou

The warehouses and workshops of the former Guǎngdōng Canned Food Factory (c 1958) are now home to Redtory art village. If you're hoping for an experience like Běijīng's similarly postindustrial 798 Art District you'll be disappointed, but the galleries, cafes and bookstores are a pleasant distraction for an afternoon. The Redtory Museum of Contemporary Art (RMCA, closed Monday), is the best gallery. Seek out Uncle Restaurant for tasty Canto snacks and milk tea.
