Unfortunately the stadium and park has not stood the test of time and feels like it has been poorly maintained. Many of the buildings are uncleaned and some already showing signs of rust. It is a vast park but is really just a tourist attraction. It's still worth a visit to see the birds nest stadium... But won't be the... More

We viewed this against my better judgement. All in all a bit of a waste of time and much better to do and view something else if your on a tight schedule. We went so we could do photos at night, All there is to see is the nest which lit up orange and yellow and the cube, lots of... More

I hope it doesn't fade out in time like Sarajevo, Barcelona or Athens. A big area where people can wander around and do sports. The zone is very nice and green, something China really needs. I enjoyed some of the architectural ideas used in Beijing Olympic Park.

I avoided going to Bird's Nest and the Water Cube for a number of years. It didn't interest me. With a night free in Beijing, I decided it might make a good photo shoot so I took the subway. What I found surprised me. I thought the venue would be almost empty, like most former Olympic/World's Fair sites I have... More

They call it the Birds nest, its clear why. Amazing construction, doesn't look as if it would stay up. Time will tell!. Nice park surrounding it but a bit under used. The locals go to the summer palace park. The tour is worth doing if you have time.

I enjoyed my visit to the Olympic Park area. The venues are beautiful. I toured the Birds nest and saw some interesting pieces showcased from the opening and closing ceremonies on display. They were setting up a new show in the arena when I toured but you can tell it doesn't get a lot of use. I took the subway... More

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.
