Went here solo, afternoon near dusk. Paid CNY 110 for the entrance fees in cash. Not all entrance gates were open, I went in through gate D/E with security checks at the gate. Staff spoke minimum English and were unintuitive. Once I'm in, I'm on...More

Niaochao National Stadium is amazing structure. It is unique for the shape and built. It is attractive and you want to explore it while you walk in the Olympic park.

Our group visited the National Stadium, a.k.a. The Bird's Nest, during our trip to the Olympic Park. The building itself is an awesome looking building that looks like it was woven together out of metal strips. You can purchase tickets to enter the building itself,...More

I have zero interest in the Olympics so I wasn't too fussed about visiting this attraction. How wrong I was. We guided ourselves around the tremendous building with little difficulty, however, walking on the roof is one of the best things I have ever done....More

quite the structure, I walked around it, the tour guide said the inside tour should be avoided, as there is nothing worth seeing. but the outside view is pretty impressive, probably nothing else like it anywhere

We had no idea that you could get onto the roof of the 'Birds Nest'. Timed our entry to be up on top for sunset. It was just spectacular, so much fun. The stadium was in the process of being converted to an indoor winter...More

One of the many impressive buildings at the Olympics Park. This iconic building was the main stadium of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. I really appreciate the design of this structure. Stylish, humorous, and eye-catching. Just have to see it in person!
