We stopped here last year as part of a tour. Due to scheduling conflict we did not get to go in. The surrounding park feels like you are in Europe, open spaces and lots trees. Too bad the air that day was pretty bad and sky hazy, we all had to wear masks. Check it out if you get a... More

If you saw the 2008 Olympics, then this a must visit. To see the bird's nest, water cube, torch, and where the Today show shot their show. I enjoyed the visit and would go back in the area!

I visited the Olympic park in the evening. I thought it would be a little quiet but was pleasantly surprised to see it wasn't. The place was alive with street food stalls and souvenir stalls. There was a good friendly vibe and never got hassled by sellers to buy their goods. the grounds were very clean & the stall traders... More

I was in awe when I saw the Bird's Nest and National Aquatics Center. Their architecture were unique and extravagant. No wonder Beijing Olympics is listed as one of the best olympics in history. You can come here by tour or commute. But I prefer you get a day tour to visit different sites in order for you to save... More

the "Bird's Nest" is an amazing structure in the middle of open space but other buildings not that far away - wide roadways and walkways surround it....it shines in the sun...... just amazing to see.

Again, had to tick this off my bucket list when I was in Beijing. The structures in this area are amazing and lit up a night. We only spent a few hours here looking at the various buildings including the ice cube and birds nest. There is a lovely park and you can travel this vast site on a noddy... More

Great place and if you can imagine that this is where history was made... It's also huge... But be cautious because it can be very crowded with tourist...
