I stay behind one more day after the Cultural Chanel exhibition in the Guangzhou’s opera house. My friends in Guangzhou told me about the Redtory Art & Design Factory so I went !!

I took a taxi from the opera house which cost only 20RMB or less to get there , suddenly I arrived in a quite greenery entrance !! So nice to get away from the busy ,dusty and forever constructing sites of hotel and office block in Guangzhou !!

Stared in the spring of 2009, Guangzhou Redtory Art & Design Factory  turns  the abandoned old industrial factory buildings into a creative /art space . Its located at the east side of the center axis through the CBD of Guangzhou, Zhujiang New Town. With full scenery on the north bank of the Pearl River in view, Redtory faces Pazhou International Exhibition Center across the lake in the south; in the north, it is the Tianhe business center, making it a precious creative district at the center of Guangzhou city replete with artistry and cultural atmosphere.
