The Birds Nest Stadium, built for the 2008 Olympics, is as impressive to look at now as it was at the time of the Beijing Olympics. However, with the exception of the stadium and the Water Cube (which apparently has undergone significant internal redevelopment), the rest of the buildings on the Olympic complex have been flattened which, less than 6...

The entrance fees for the "bird nest stadium" are RMB 50 for access to 1st and partial 5th floor and RMB 80 for full access. I think the price is too expensive.

Don't get me wrong, it was great to see the Olympic Park whilst on holiday in Beijing. However, this was spoilt by the scam of spending 80Y on 'VIP tickets' for the Birds Nest Stadium. We were under the impression that if we did not pay the 80Y we would be unable to enter the stadium, however this was not... More

We went here as part of a tour trip. You can't get into the Olympic stadium but can walk just outside and take photos of it. Also you can take photos with the mascots. Good fun and cheap

The Olympic Park with the Birds Nest and Water Cube buildings is easy to reach on the Subway no matter where your coming from. I visited during the day and it was a scorching hot 38 degrees right up until mid to late afternoon. It's a huge space to cover on foot and the Water Cube is best viewed as... More

It's by no means the most exciting thing you're going to see in Beijing. The most interesting thing about it was the shopping centre that was next to it. The shopping centre was brand new, but the majorityo of shops were closed, there were no shoppers, and no staff. It was like a ghost town and eerily quiet with the... More

- its an interesting set of architecture (the Bird's Nest the Water Cube) - definitely worth seeing, esp. when the buildings are lit up at night - not worth paying the fee to go inside, just walking around the area is good enough - if you're short on time, definitely worth skipping

It looks empty, sad and not maintained. Not many people go there, it seems. It takes quite some tome to get there - dont waste it

The Olympic Park is huge and there's lots to see, not only the Bird's Nest Stadium, but the Water Cube and other sports facilities, trees, hiking trails, and waterways. Locals flock to the park, especially in the evening. The star attracition of Olympic Park is the Bird's Nest National Stadium, of course. Unfortunately, Chinese authorities have allowed the rapid decay... More
