Offially called “The Red Brick Factory”(红砖厂), Redtory is an old soviet-style factory that was transformed into an artsy district. The former industrial compound is now a place for public art, creative studios and art galleries. There are temporary exhibitions from chinese as well as international artists such as Picasso.If you want to relax and enjoy the silence far from all the crowded and noisy streets in the center of Guangzhou you can sip a cup of tea in one of the fancy Cafés in Redtory. Having our afternoon tea at LP coffee I was amazed by their handmade menues with different designs on each of them.

Although there are still a lot of empty buildings in the district, Redtory is definetly worth going for a walk since the contrast between old factory architecture and modern art creates a very interesting atmosphere. Besides it can be fun watching a lot of (sometimes more sometimes less professional) chinese models and photographers trying to get some edgy fashion shots there.
