My boyfriend and I took the advice of other TripAdvisors and walked through the park on a Saturday evening. It was full of people of all ages, strolling, flying kites, eating, singing karaoke, dancing, and having a good time.

I enjoyed watching the Beijing Olympics so to see the site was awesome. I went in the daytime and saw the birdsnest and the water cube architectural masterpieces! What I didn't know was the number of dragons on site ( the water/ lake, the buildings nearby etc) Great place to people watch - hint: don't use the pota-loos, really don't.... More

We added this to our tour and I am glad we didn't miss it. Some of our group chose to go into the birds nest stadium, which was 90 yuan, however I chose not to. The structure of the stadium is amazing and well worth seeing. The best thing was actually people watching in the park. Was impressed with the... More

We came here about 9.30 in the morning for a quick photo stop. Got some great pics of the birds nest and water cube. Nothing much else was there. Reading previous reviews sounds like night time is the best time to visit the park. There are also lots of photo sellers there who will constantly approach you.

Birdsnest construction is worth seeing. Pay the admission to go inside to stand in the centre for a photo. But nothing much inside. Water Cube was not lite during the sunny afternoon so it did not have the same effect as my visit in 2008. Duh! Grounds are OK but crowds enormous. Take the subway, snap a few photos and... More

Large street full of markets and stadium and other sporting facilities, okay for someone interested but this facility could be in any country any way I would rather spend time at the traditional landmarks of Beijing. If you are Caucasian prepare to be asked by some local Chinese people for a group selfie with you

While I'm sure this place would have been more fantastic during the actual 2008 Olympics, some of its structures are still worth seeing, like the Bird's Nest. Though I didn't buy the ticket and go inside that stadium, a friend of mine did and told me that it was worth the money (he's a hard-core fan of Bolt and Phelps).... More

Had a really enjoyable time here. As we came up from the Olympic Sports Centre subway station we walked straight ahead into the Tourist Information office. Here we secured tickets to take the electric bus around the park for an overview and entrance to the inner sanctum of the Birds Nest which has to be one of the better outings... More

The "birds nest" is the 2008 Olympic stadium, and the structure is mind boggling. Architecture is so irregular it almost seems impossible for it to stand, yet there it is!!! The park is worth a visit, even a short one!!! Don´t miss this spot

If you have time to burn in Beijing then it's worth a visit. Plenty to see and nice to see what it was like after seeing it on tv. Keep and eye out for people running scams. Easy access by subway too! Have fun!
