Creative Industries often referred in Beijing as Cultural & Creative Industries (CCI) have became a "buzz" word for both policy makers and creative business in Beijing in a matter of just a few years. Eight sub-sectors are selected to be the key components of Beijing's cultural and creative industry. They are: performing arts, publishing and trading of intellectual property, movie and TV production, animation and interactive games, advertising and conference organization, antique and arts trading, creative design ,cultural tourism.

The creative industries in Beijing have been booming since 1978. After decades of strict control by the state, the cultural life of ordinary people was greatly enhanced when market mechanisms were introduced. Beijing has a number of unrivalled advantages in its bid to become the creative capital of China.
For your glimpse of Beijing's creativity industry, we have designed a one day private tour to cover some of the 10 creativity industry zones in Beijing. Let's go!

Pick up from your hotel around 8:30am and first drive to Beijing "Silicon Valley" for a short visit. The Zhongguancun district in the northwest corner of Beijing not far from the Summer Palace is often dubbed "Silicon Valley". It is already inhabited by thousands of high-tech companies, ranging from local firms large and small to international companies like Microsoft, Sun, Siemens, Nokia, NEC. Z-Park (The Zhongguancun district) is composed of seven parks, covering an area of about 100 square kilometers close to the city's internationally esteemed educational institutions such as Tsinghua University, the University of Beijing, and the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS). Now Zhongguancun is the center for electronic products trading and base for the creative industry at national-level. Chinese President Hu Jintao announced the plan in 2006 to turn China into an "innovation-oriented" country by 2021. The Z-Park (Zhongguancun district), China's homegrown Silicon Valley, is the pioneer in the innovation and creativity industry in China. As the largest and oldest of the over 50 national high-tech zones in China, Z-Park has become an important hub for the world corporations seeking both to develop R&D for all sectors and to have a foothold in the market in China.

Then go to visit 798 Art Zone, or Dashanzi Art District. It is a part of Dashanzi in the Chaoyang District of Beijing. It accommodates a thriving artist community, nestled in the over 50-year abandoned military factory buildings of featuring architectural style - typical Bauhaus style with perfect combination of practicality and concision. Because of the typical modernism Bauhaus style of some factory buildings, the orderly-planned courtyard and the distinctive architectural style, more and more artists are attracted to settle here and have formed the present 798 Art Zone gradually. Now It is often likened to New York's Greenwich Village or SOHO. It is often called the 798 Art District or Factory 798. The buildings are located inside alleys number 2 and 4 on Jiuxianqiao Lu, south of the Dashanziqiao flyover. It has become China's premier center of contemporary art and is now one of the must see attraction in Beijing after the Great Wall and Forbidden City. The SOHO complex showcases the contemporary art covering over 50 galleries and art centers of various sizes and includes a blend of bookshops, cafes, and restaurants.

After lunch, drive to Songzhuang Artist Village. It is actually composed of several villages around Songzhuang town in the east suburb of Beijing. There are over 1000 artists lived in these villages within Songzhuang town, forming the largest art community in the world. It is mainly scattered in eight villages as Tongli, Liuhe, Daxing, Xindian, Lama, Ren village, with Xiaopu Village as its center. Since 1994, Artist Village has become internationally famous for China contemporary art. Many works here are sold directly to the international art market and loved by many museums and collectors. By the year of 2010, it will be turned into a famous artist town of China and primarily build several creativity industrial bases. By the yare of 2020, it will be developed into the international culture creativity industrial park and creation culture and tourism district with its own unique feature.
