With Subway line8, a hop off at the Olympic Sports center and exit B2 you immediatly see the birds nest, the National Stadion of Beijing. We found it very nice to walk around and see the Olympic park of 2008 and all its nice architectural...More
It is a huge and beautiful park with walking trails. The park is well maintained and very clean. You will see people doing Tai Chi in the morning. The Bird Nest Stadium and National Aquatic Center are the main attractions. At night both are lit...More
The design of these buildings is more impressive in real life than on the telly. It's remarkable how spread out the city is, but the Water Cube & Bird's Nest are quite close. It'll be great to see these buildings in use again in 2022.
We visited the venue with my husband and two teen daughters from the United States. My husband has been here a number of times for business so we had our own personal tour guide. I was not prepared for the size of the property. It...More
The whole olympic area is huge, wasnt such a large crowd here. Lots of walking involved, especially if you dont have a ticket for the mini bus or train that frequently drive around the park on tours. The water cube and birds nest are in...More
The complex is absolutely HUGE. Prepare for crowds. The water cube is a massive complex full. The play area for children is excellent, very well resourced with lots of fun, interesting activities, HOWEVER, it is very, very crowded. Be prepared for long waits for rides....More
The stadium was great. Amazing to see where the Olympics were held. You can view from inside on all the different levels and take photos of the stadium and concourse. The Cube was disappointing as the main competition area was closed so it was nothing...More

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.
