Made famous by the Olympic Games, this stadium is quite impressive. While not a show stopper this is well worth a walk around the exterior which is free. You can go inside for a fee but inside it just a stadium. A very big one....More

This was the main stadium built for the 2008 olympics. An architectural marvel and rather impressive. You can actually exercise in there

We joined the stadium tour but it turns out that the tour was only in Chinese so we had absolutely no clue what was going on. Bit of a waste of money in that regard. The stadium itself is great in that you are free...More
