National Indoor Stadium
Mar 2018 • Friends
We were able to see this building during our group tour of Olympic Park. It is officially called National Indoor Stadium and nick-named "The Fan". It is across from the Bird's Nest and beside the Water Cube in the park. It is a large building, but not as uniquely shaped as two of the other buildings in the park. It was interesting to see where the indoor games from the Beijing Olympics were played, but I would not have gone to see this building had it not been so close to the other two. The hidden architecture of this building is interesting as it was built to be a green building and puts out as much as 100 kilowatts of electricity daily from photo-voltaic generators built under the roof and curtains of the building.

Out of all the stadiums inside the Olympic Park, this one is more 'normal' looking. There didn't seem to have any special features from the exterior except that it is a massive building.

The Fan
Mar 2017 • Family
This is the indoor arena located in the Olympic Green. It is nicknamed the Fan due to its design resembling a traditional Chinese folding fan. At the 2008 Olympics, it hosted the Artistic Gymnastics, Trampoline and Handball events. This is part of the landmark structures in the area.

This is another important building we saw in the Olympic Park. Although there was no performance when we visited, the memory of Beijing Olympics was still there with the building.

Olympic stadium
Sep 2016
The overall structure from outside is very impressive -both for the athletic as well as the one for swimming (blue colour structure from outside). We could not go inside as we got late but we could see from outside at 7pm both got illuminated and it was a treat to watch even from outside.
The place is pretty big and the guide said the government is trying hard to use the premises by organising some star foot ball matches etc....

Impressive structure!
Jun 2016
I didn't go inside the stadium, but the structure from the outside alone is worth heading to just to snap a picture. Having seen stadiums from all around the world including the Nou Camp and the Allianz Arena, and living a stones throw away from Wembley Stadium - let me tell you, that none of them come close to how imposing the Birds Nest is.

Great but pollution kills the view.

The stadium is great, shamefully the pollution won't let you enjoy it at is best!.

We did the water cube and the stadium the same day, water cube needs some maintenance, but still won't recolmend visiting.

Did not enter the stadium as its expensive
May 2016 • Couples
Its quite expensive to buy the entrance to the stadium considering that it's only a stadium. So we looked and took photos from the outside. On that note, its just another structure.

The Birds Nest
Jun 2015 • Friends
We lived for 11 years in this area, only 10 minutes walk from our home, we have seen the construction from the very beginning and enjoyed many games during the Olympics of 2008.
Go here, it is a great impression!

World Athletics Championships

Saw the athletics championships here. What a place and what an experience. I don't just mean the clean and nice smelling toilets. It's a great place to watch an event. Watch the ticket touts. They tried to sell us fakes. Take a phot of an original ticket and compare it to those they try to sell you. Look at the colours and layout etc.
