Every time I come to the Bird’s Nest (also known as Niaochao National Stadium, Beijing National Stadium and National Stadium), something different is happening at the Bird’s Nest. This unique venue is used for an increasing number and variety of events. It was the main stadium for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

I attended a celebration dinner held in a VIP box of the Niaochao National Stadium (aka, Bird’s Nest Stadium and Beijing National Stadium). It was quite a privilege. The Chinese cuisine was exotically presented and delicious. They continue to come up with innovative ways of using the stadium. A ski jump is currently being installed.

Everyone has probably seen pictures of this stadium (The Birdsnest) but it wasn't until I saw it in person that the massive design brilliance was apparent. It is ENORMOUS. No matter what angle I viewed it from as I walked around it I couldn't help but marvel at its uniqueness and its complex yet at the same time simple design.

I visited the Olympic Park area twice during my trip to Beijing; the first time at night and the second time during the day. At night the Olympic stadium is lit up in red and is very spectacular to look at, just as impressive as on the TV. When I returned during the day I went inside (cost around £2 or so I think) and wandered around inside the stadium. It is quite spectacular, particularly if you head all the way to the top. I think it is designed so that every seat can see the whole of the playing surface, and it achieves this, even on the top tier. Probably the most spectacular stadium I have visited.

I bought the through pass to go in the birds stadium and the water cube.

A little disappointed, there's really nothing to see you just walk up the a few floors see the roof and inside and that's about it.

You don't' get to go on the field. It really is a shell of its former self if you were here for the 2008 olympics.

Summary-

Bathrooms inside just have to find one that they didn't lock the door to
Worth just going at night taking a picture from the outside don't bother going in and paying 100 rmb for the through ticket.

A trip to Beijing should include a visit to the Bird's Nest, but an hour or two at max is more than enough, and at night is best, when the building is lit up. I've visited twice, including buying tickets to enter the Stadium. It's impressive, but poorly maintained with peeling paint, and seemingly quiet. The subway makes it easy to get to, but there are hardly any cars around or places to eat. I wouldn't advise paying to enter as there is no information or guides, but the building itself is very cool.

An amazing architectural structure to see as part of your visit to Olympic Park. Best seen around 4:30pm as the sun is getting ready to set for the view as it starts to get lit up (the water cube is equally impressive when lit up).

Don't bother paying to enter here, it's expensive (80 RMB/person) and really has nothing to see on the inside except for a poorly maintained stadium. Much more impressive is the view from outside that makes for great pictures.

It had a short life. It was the center of the world for a few months, but now it is not used for sports activities. I heard they want to transform it in a mall..
Anyway, the stadium is beautiful seen from afar, but unfortunately lacks in maintenance, and you will see this if you get close to it.
Its architecture is amazing, and the lights during the night are beautiful. A must have picture for a "professional tourist".

Grand architecture to take photo with. You could go in the evening and then have dinner at a nearby shopping mall and then return at night to take photo. The Bird Nest is very beautiful at night with its red lighting and also the beautifully blue-lighted Water Cube opposite. If you wish to take a look at the gigantic stadium inside, you would have to pay an entrance fee, currently the track is close for repairs and I could not enter the tracks unless I want to ride the segway. There is a souvenir shop near the tracks if you wish to buy Bird Nest related souvenirs.

I was staying in a nearby hotel for a conference. This was a neat area to walk around in the evening. The stadium and the water cube are lit up, and when I was there fountains were going in the plaza. I did not go in the stadium.
