This was the highlight of our visit to Beijing. If you visit a tour of the inside of the stadium including a walk on the roof is a must. The view from the roof is spectacular on a good day and all the Olympic Park facilities can be easily seen. The architecture is very unique. Must-see attraction.

Perfect place to walk around to experience the Olympic Park. This is a huge area with open spaces for roller skates, skate board and just plan walking. There is a shopping area just next to the subway exist so you don't even need to get above ground.

Must see the birds nest. There isn't much else to see other than the watercube and the Olympic Rings perched above.

The sheer size of this stadium is a must-see! Each piece was hand made and no 2 pieces are alike! Unfortunately, after the Olympics, the park as become a little run down.

Don't specially make the trip there to see the stadium and the water cube. It is just that. If you really want to go, go at night when they light up the water cube.

It is of course a must place to see. The architecture is phenomenal!! But the park is massive... So wear some comfortable shoes and be ready to walk!! Everything is super well maintained... Even almost 10 years later! You also have to buy tickets to enter.

After the Olympucs the stadium is used for bid events only. But it is not open for tourists. It looks majestic from a distance
