All reviews bird's nest water cube aquatic center beautiful at night modern architecture ice cubes worth a visit walk around amazing architecture nice place to visit subway line take photos the dragon forbidden city arena track stroll
I went there to swim at the Olympic park. The park itself was pretty incredible but almost no one there speaks English so I had quite the time trying to get a taxi to the airport after, still super fun
You don't have to be a sports fan in order to deeply appreciate the park. I strongly recommend to visit the area after dark (7 PM) - when the stadium, the Olympic pool and towers are beautifully lit. The architecture is impressive and the area...More
Avoid at all cost to take the VIP night tour, it's expensive and does not worth it. If you Visit the stadium at night you'll see a booth right outside of the entrance selling tickets for the VIP night tour. They only take you to...More
Really enjoyed our visit to the Olympic Park. We decided to go at night and we were glad we did even if we couldn't enter the Bird's Nest because of an ongoing concert. Both the Bird's Nest and the Water Cube look beautiful illuminated at...More
Though a bit expensive, we took the ride to the top of the Olympic towers. The views from there are astounding. Quite a few of other places in the park require ticket purchase. Overall, quite an impressive place to spend time at.
It is easy to be overwhelmed with the size of the park. First, it is free to enter the park. But to enter certain complex like the aquatic center and the bird’s nest, you need to pay. For me, these two made me happy already....More
It was a very interesting experience being in the stadium that held the Olympic Games.

There are some great Olympic Games souvenirs inside the stadium. A “Normal” entrance ticket is 40 Yuan (20 Yuan for concessions). I recommend the encapsulated section of 2008 Games grass/soil, price 150 Yuan.

Green Line subway (#8) is best, getting off at "Olympic Sports Ctr". Green line intersects directly with Purple Line (#5), Light Blue Line (#10), Dark Blue Line (#2), Yellow Line (#13) and Changping (light lilac line but no # yet). All other subway lines require 2 transfers. So where you board depends on where you are starting from, but you want to end up on the Green Line (#8). There are color coded route maps in all stations and also most subway cars. Also each subway car has an electronic sign that notes all stops on its route, and highlights the current one. Signs are in both Chinese and English, as are oral announcements. You can find a great subway system map by googling "Beijing Subway System", but I can't reproduce the link here.
