Living down the street from Olympic Park and working inside Olympic Park has been an amazing experience but it took me over a year to go and check out the Birds Nest and Water Cube end of the park. The Birds Nest Stadium is commonly used for concerts and other large events so if you want o go inside you'll need to make sure one of these events is not being packed down or set up. But I recommend just doing the stadium yourself. Buy your tickets near the gate 80rmb ($15aud) and head inside. Everything is signed in English and Chinese and it's not difficult to find your way around. You can climb to the roof and get some decent photos. It's beautiful to see such a large green parkland in the northern centre of the city. I also recommend hanging around until night time to see the stadiums all lit up and to dance with the different groups in the square - everyone from teenagers skating around and learning hip hop routines to grandma's dancing and traditional fan dances. I think it comes alive at night time. There is a shopping complex attached to the train station where you can grab a bite to eat and wander around between afternoon and sunset. If you can get up the towers for clear sunset it's worth the price. It is worth noting that. preparation is in full swing (and has been for a while now) for the winter Olympics 2022. Beijing has maintained most of its park buildings as well as finishing the Olympic Tower. They are adding more for the winter games, a new ice rink has sprung up at the end of my street. They have put up their countdown clocks and are hosting performances and small festivals. There are souvenir shops full of 2022 merchandise as well.

We loved visiting Olympic Park! Had read reviews that it wasn’t no big deal but we thought that it was fabulous! We took the bus from Wudaokou area and arrived slightly before sunset and purchased tickets to go to the Bird’s Nest (100RMB.) It is awesome to see them getting ready for the 2022 Winter Olympics. We went to the very top of the Nest and got to see the skyline turn from day to night. It was very cold and just magical. They were making snow for the ski slopes and a winter village. You can pick up a few official 2022 Winter Olympic items if you would like and find a bite to eat. We did not get to explore the Olympic Forest but it’s a great escape in the heart of the city.

If you enjoy architecture this is a good place to visit. For me it was impressive at night time as you can experience the stadium and ice cube while it is illuminated.You do not have to spend to much time here as there are not much else to do but it is worth a short visit.

This Olympic Park is best know at “The Nest” 鳥巢which is the main premises for sports during Olympic 2008 in BJ. Tips for visit: 1) It is better to visit this attraction at evening time (after 5 pm during winter time) as you can take photography when the building is lit up with different colors. 2) This attraction also allows to enter into the building at RMB40 (higher price for VIP visit). 3) My opinion is normal fee is good enough for 30-45 minutes. 4) Please also pay a visit to The Cube which is the main water sport center during the Olympic Game 2008. If you like my review, pls click “helpful”. Enjoy your trip.
