The Pier-2 Art Centre, Yancheng

A complex of old warehouses converted into exhibition halls and artsy boutiques, The Pier-2 Art Centre houses various modern art projects in the middle of a huge abandoned industrial district. Take in the psychedelic-colored sculptures, installations, graffiti, large paintings, and other street art, and browse around the various industrial structures, including an old steam engine on display. You can also stroll along the wharf or take a mini-train tour of this post-industrial area, built in 1973. Cafes, bars, bookstores, and handicraft shops cluster in this private, university-managed center.

  • Loved this place! It's right off the light rail. I really liked that the art pieces weren't listed on a map. You had to wander to find the different pieces. A great blend of stores and a movie theater too! You can definitely spend an afternoon wandering around here!
  • Go in the later part of the day as food options are limited. It's a fun place for the youngsters especially on a cool breezy day of 16 degrees, it's near the port and brings refreshing air quality. However, bringing elderly here may be a little challenging as it's like a huge park without benches. Nonetheless, it's a good place for family outing, don't forget to try out the LRT that can bring you to Dream Mall near by! Really cheap ride at only NT$10 regardless of distance travelled! How sweet and convenient!
