Whether its foodies from all over China coming to try the local congee or double-skinned milk or art lovers traveling near and far to see exhibitions from the likes of Roy Lichtenstein and Bernar Venet at He Art Museum, Shunde has always been a place with plenty to see and do. With the opening of the ALSO creative space in Beijiao, the must-do list when in Shunde just got longer.
Located right beside Midea Group HQ, the eclectic mix of restaurants, coffee shops, and bars wrap round in a U-shape looking in on a green space dotted with trees that regularly plays host to exciting pop-up vendors as well as hosting some of the biggest events in the area.
ALSO is a great spot to hit during the day. Those looking for a business lunch can consider trying King Thaia, with their vibrant takes on classic Thai dishes, or Initial Noodles, with its menu of Northern Chinese favorites and sleek minimalist décor.
Visitors are also spoilt for choice when it comes to coffee. They can head to Mate Made for a taste of life down under and enjoy some of the finest Australian coffee you can find outside of Sydney or head next door to Amian Bakery where they serve coffee that is as fresh as their fantastic bread selection.
Any bookworms looking for a coffee are recommended to walk further along to OW Space. Part-book store and part-café, OW Space boasts a lovely outdoor seating area on their second floor, where customers can take a seat to enjoy a coffee and a book against the backdrop of Midea Group HQ and He Art Museum.
