When I find myself floating back to old Guangzhou, I always visit my favourite haunts. A few weeks ago I stumbled back to Redtory. A really cool art district, made up of many old warehouses in the eastern part of the city. Extremely difficult to find, it’s hidden down some little alleys, covered in graffiti and the smell of fried noodles. It’s a true hidden gem. The first time I went there was last year during an Italian film festival. It took two days for me to actually find it, but it was worth it in the end. This time I went there on a Sunday afternoon and it was so chilled. Photographers everywhere. Exciting art exhibits and little side cafes selling everything from China all the way to Mexico, and ice cream with yummy m&m’s sprinkled on top. On weekends they have a quaint little market filled with local crafts and even random animal ears (not real ones…). There was a real buzz in the air and the sunshine was beaming down and I was eating strawberry ice cream and enjoying all the photos of people on trains in China.
